Which do Australians and Canadians usually prefer for closing remarks of letters, the British style (e.g. Yours sincerely,) or the American style (e.g. Sincerely yours)?
We certainly live in more informal times than previously.
It's hard to say, but I'd guess that for business letters Canadians favour 'Yours sincerely'. 'Sincerely yours' seems a tiny bit pallsy-wallsy to me, as a British Canadian.
For personal letters, who knows? I favour 'From your cutesy-wutesy'.
Best wishes, Clive
