Student or Learner
I am writing a greeting card to my professor and need some help.
My professor and his wife (who is also a professor) have been very helpful to me and I want to send them a greeting card, but I am not sure if I have the salutation correct. I am not using real names but the last name ends with an 's' so is the apostrophe in the correct place?
Dear Drs. Walters',
I will accept what emsr2d2 says, but I find 'Dear Drs King' ugly.
I would address them on the envelope as 'Dr M King' and 'Dr F King'.
If I had to address a greeting to them, I would write 'Dear Doctors King'.
No expertise here - just my personal thoughts.
"One of the real joys of the Holiday Season is the opportunity to say Thank You! I am truly very grateful for your support and guidance! I wish you two the very best for the New Year!"
I found this message online (and added a little bit myself) but don't think the capitalization of Holiday Season and Thank You are necessary, and I also think that Thank You should be in quotation marks. Am I right?
I would put "Thank you" in quotation marks but with the capital T.
I don't like Holiday Season at all, even without capitals but that could just be because I'm in the UK and we don't refer to the Christmas/New Year/festive period like that. If you're in America, and that's the accepted term, then use it. I wouldn't capitalise it, though.
"One of the real joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to say "Thank you!" I am truly very grateful for your support and guidance! I wish you two the very best for the New Year!"
I'd capitalise the first letter of 'Thank'
I also think I'd say '... I wish you both ...' rather than '... I wish you two ...'.
emsr2d2 beat me to it.
Thank you, emsr2d2 and 5jj !!!
