Im confused about how to use please or please kindly....
More details as follows,
1. Please arrange the goods to deliver to our warehouse.
2. Please kindly arrange the goods to deliver to our warehouse.
Which one is better? If either 1 and 2 are not better, please give me guideline to write a better sentence.
1 is far superior. There is never a need to use 'kindly' in this way.
Can "Please kindly" being used in business e-mail?
(Well, it can, but it sounds most unnatural)
"Kindly" is often (usually?) used sarcastically or aggressively in AusE when used in a request.
"Would you kindly stop your dog from pooping on my lawn. Thank you."
"Your payment is three months overdue. Kindly pay it as soon as possible."
I consider it tautology because 'kindly' means 'please' according to definition#4 below.
The above definition seems to have confirmed the following comment:
