Hi,

You could call it a valediction, but it's a rather fancy word.

Hi

It is sometimes called "signing off". This is a metaphor from radio, when the speaker gives their identity before they stop speaking

And I'll sign off now!..

With best regards, Dave

abcteach Writing Friendly Letters writing


Friendly letters have five parts:

  1. The Heading: The heading can include your address and the date. In casual, friendly letters your address is not necessary.
  2. The Salutation (greeting): This usually begins with Dear_________. The blank is for the name of the person you are writing. After you write the person's name you put a comma ( , ) .
  3. The Body: The body of the letter is the information you are writing in your letter.
  4. The Closing: In the closing the first word is capitalized and you put a comma after the last word.

Some examples of closings are:

  • Sincerely,
  • Your friend,
  • Love,
  • Very truly yours,

5. Your Signature: This is your name. It goes under the closing
