The more trite the better when crafting a formal letter. Avoid phrases such as "good day," "good morning," "good evening," or anything else that indicates you expect the receiver to read your letter on the same day or at the same time as you sent it. Formal letters are usually mailed on paper with ink that has been delivered by postal service carrier so they can be tracked and returned if necessary.
Writing "good day" instead of "good morning" shows that you respect others' privacy and don't want to interrupt their daily activities. Using "good night" instead of "good morning" shows an equal respect for others who may not rise until late into the day.
Writing a formal letter is also important for getting your message across clearly. Errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation will give the impression that you aren't serious about your correspondence, thus harming your reputation as a communicator.
As long as you're writing in a polite manner, there's no reason why you can't write "good day" or any other greeting you like.
The following greetings should not be used in official letters or emails: Good morning. Good morning or afternoon (you don't know when they'll get the letter or email) Hi, how are you? Goodbye.
Instead, use these phrases to show that you respect someone's time: Thank you for your help. I appreciate your giving me a chance. Have a nice day.
Avoiding Greetings The following greetings should not be used in official letters or emails: Good morning. Hello There is no need for people in business to use formalities such as "Dear Sir/Madam" or "Respected Manager". They can be omitted without changing the meaning of what's being said.
Using "Mr." or "Mrs." Before a name is appropriate only if you know it to be true. Otherwise, use the person's title. For example, Mr. Smith would be used by someone who knows him well enough to call him by his first name. Mrs. Brown would be used by someone who knows her and has authority over her. Using "Sir" or "Ma'am" is also appropriate when talking to people you meet for the first time. These titles are also used in documents and emails sent to people who may not be familiar with you or your company.
Here are some other ways to start a letter that aren't quite right: With best wishes, From one person to another, Dear friend, Warm welcome home, Good luck on your project, Get well soon.
Salutations for Formal Letters Greetings (also known as Good Morning, Good Afternoon): Consider these alternatives to be a more formalized variant of "hello" and "hi." They're ideal for formal written or printed letters and emails to strangers (or only know on a casual basis).
The forms are: Grayscale salutation; Blackletter salutation. Both forms were popular in the 15th century. Today they are used mainly by older writers or people who like to use blackletter font.
In English-speaking countries, the standard greeting is "Hello" or "Hi"; however, in some cultures "Jambo" or "Ola" is used instead. These are all variations of the original European "Guten Tag" or "Bonjour". In Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, "Salaam alaikum" is used as a general greeting, which can also be replied to with "Wa Alaikum Salaam" (meaning "And to you, a good day").
In North America, the standard greeting is usually "Hello", but other variations include "Yo" and "Hey". In Latin America, the standard greeting is "Hola", but other variations include "Chao" and "Ciao".
The finest time to write is in the early morning. Your writing experience may contradict this morning's guidance, and I understand. The consensus on a single top writing period is quite shaky. We still don't know a lot about body rhythms and the writing process. However, we do know this: The most productive hour for writing is noon-2 p.m. This is when most people's brains are at their most active and open to new ideas. Some go as late as 4 p.m., but by then they need a new brain wave.
Early risers might want to consider setting an alarm clock an hour before they expect to wake up, just in case they fall asleep during the night. Then they can get up with the sun and start writing!
Of course, there's no right or wrong time to write. Just write! Even if it's not perfect, your readers won't care if you aren't supposed to write until 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. They'll simply appreciate that you got something down on paper (or screen) even if it isn't exactly what you intended.
You may write anything along the lines of: Dear Sir, Good morning to you, and I hope this letter finds you in good health.
"Good Day" is appropriate for usage at any time of day. You may still say "Good morning" if it's 11:30 a.m. but not nearly 12 p.m. Other options I employ at any time of day are "Hello!", a nice "Hi!", or even simply a friendly upper-nod or a regular nod. And people are content.
You can only say "good day" or "good evening," "good morning" or "good afternoon," but these forms aren't used in emails, as far as I know, because emails may be viewed at any time. If the email is casual, you may start with, "Hello everyone!"
Dear angel, I simply wanted to say hello and good day. I know the body is fatigued, but a cold afternoon welcome can suffice. 2. I want to be the one you adore, the source of your pleasure and joy in life. May you find peace, love, prosperity, and harmony in all of your life's pursuits.
