Have you ever seen this word "Goodself", I saw it many times but don't know exactly its meaning. Most of the time, I saw in the documents of Singaporean, Malaysian, and Indian letters. Could you give me the exact meaning, please? I have some examples herein for your interpretation.
1. Reference is made to the teleconversation between your goodself and our Ms. Wan recently.
2. We are pleased to award the above-mentioned work to your company for the sum of S$ 200,000.00 as agreed between goodself and the undersigned.
Thank you in advance.
The word you are talking about is actually two seperate words; good self.
The phrase "your good self" simply means "you", but it is an extremely polite and formal way of saying it.
It's not used in current British English nor, I think, American. It means, as Red says, yourself. I wouldn't use it in corrspondence with BE orAE speakers, but it is used in Indian English.
The last time I saw it was in one of those scam letters about 20,000,000 dollars from Lagos, Nigeria.
