Hmm... never thought of this until now. "Girl" if highschooler or younger. "Woman" for older than highschoolers. "Girl" for close friends. Similar for guys. "Boy" if highschooler or younger. "Man" for older than highschoolers. "Bro" for close friends. I don't really think about it but I'm pretty sure this is how I generally call people most of the time, though not always.

halloo obaa-san. Hows the weather?=)

In all seriousness there is no set time when an girl becomes a woman i thinks.When they mature enough they do.
I guess that is right

I think it depends on who you're addressing. For instance, you probably wouldn't call your mother or grandmother girl.
Conversely, it would feel awkward for a girl to shout "Hey woman!" to a friend or an acquaintance every time either..

When dating them doesn't result in you going to prison, so 18 I guess

Not in English, but when I speak Spanish you are often forced to choose one or another.

Oye Señora: Hey woman usually, but if she is older you basically use this one it seems
Oye Señorita: Hey young woman/unmarried woman

If your speaking to someone trans-gendered, well your kinda screwed I guess on what to say. Never really gave that thought until now.

I call a girl a girl when they look 18 or younger and a woman a woman when they have some kind of authority over me. For example, a teacher. I don't actually call any one a woman. I actually use lady

Why not just indiscriminately say 'chiquita', then.

Sounds weird for a formal greeting.

Whatever I think they'd refer to themselves as. Not always possible to judge it though as I once had my soul destroyed at a swimming pool aged 14, when I passed a ball back to a kid and his mother said 'thank the kind woman'. Made me feel like I was super old.

But I'm a womanchild even now so that's probably just me!

I guess 20, somewhere in the early twenties; I don't know, I always saw being a teenager and under as the more childish point, and then when you hit your twenties you start to break away from that.
