Signal Formality with Your Sign Off

Traditional forms of ending a communication include Sincerely and Yours truly. Modern but still professional forms include Regards, With regards, Best regards, and Cordially.

Using the traditional forms of ending your communication creates a formal tone. Employing more modern forms generates an informal tone. Consult your Formality Index from Chapter One to decide which approach is best.

With the traditional forms, you generally sign (or type in an E-mail) your full name. With modern forms, you may sign your full name or only your first name.
