    word courtesy

    Hi,

    I have seen many times using the word courtesy at the end of sentences. As per its literal meaning it implies politeness.
    But what does it mean when we use it at the end of some sentence?

    Appreciate reply.

    Can you please give us an example of a sentence you have seen where "courtesy" is used at the end?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Will you provide us a sentence in which the aforementioned word being used, please? Also, I think there is no meaning without a context. In other words, context is everything.

    You may be referring to a South Asian usage that I am not familiar with, but in BrE if the word comes at the end, it will have the same meaning.
