  • Usage notes

    * In British English the adverb almost invariably follows the word yours'' at the end of a letter; in most dialects of American English it usually precedes it. As a general rule, ''sincerely'' is only employed if the name of the recipient is already known to the writer; a letter begun with ''Dear Sir'' or ''Dear Madam'' finishes with ''faithfully''. ''Yours'' on its own and ''yours ever are less formal than the other forms.
