    Letter ending

    Dear Sir,

    While we write a letter, we end the letter using different phrases e.g.
    Regards, Kind Regards, Thanks and Regards, Sincerely, Yours ... and so on.

    Can any one explain the context wherein such phrases are used.

    Regards, ( Unknowly using thus)

    Gulam Dastgir

    Re: Letter ending

    In business letters in British English, we use 'Yours sincerely' when we use the person's name in the later and 'Yours faithfully' when we use Dear Sir or Madam. 'Regards' is common in emails and less formal letters, Kind/Warm/Best are just added to sound more friendly. We don't use 'Yours truly' much.
