Can 'greet' be used when someone is 'saying hello' to someone they are coming up to. I have seen it used in the opposite order, as in greeting a visitor. Can it also be used for the visitor?
Said by someone with people coming to him:
The pub-owner greeted his guests when they came though the door.
Said by someone going to others:
Lisa had just moved in and went next door to greet her neighbors.
