Analysis of Compimentary Closing
The letter is an essential element in any agency or company as an interface to deliver important and official. The letter on the other hand is one of the means of communication to convey a meaning with written language.
This time I will try to analyze the complimentary closing on the part of the letter. complimentary closing is only used in the news letter. This section is generally not required. But in Indonesia applying for compimentary closing tend to be mandatory for communicating ethics.
The complimentary closing should convey the level of formality and degree of personal feeling that the writer has for the reader.
The complimentary closing (omitted in the simplified letter format) appears two lines below the last line of text. Its alignment varies with the format of the letter:
In block letters, the complimentary closing
appears flush with the left margin.
In modified and semiblock letters, the
complimentary appears right of center or may
be flush with the right margin.
Complimentary closings for business letters include:
Sincerely, Sincerely yours, Thank you, Regards,
Complimentary closings for informal letters include:
Best wishes, Kindest regards, Best regards, Cordially,
Complimentary closings for very formal letters (those addressed to dignitaries and high officials) include:
Yours sincerely, Respectfully yours, Respectfully,
The word “truly” has become a cliche and should be avoided in letter closings.
Compimentary closing sentences in Indonesia are generally accustomed to using the word“Wassalamualikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Or Wassalam“
taken from the Arabic word meaning“Salvation and God’s grace may remain in you all Or And peace be with you“
