- On a Letter What Does Re: Mean??
i.e. does it mean replying (to a previous letter), or regarding (subject matter)...........
- Also would you put this before or after the dear sir/madam part??
Thanks For Any Help
PS. I Know This Is Totally The Wrong Place To Post This In, But I'm Off To a Funeral in China Tomorrow and Need To Send of My IB Application Form Off Tonight
It means 'in reference to' or 'in regard to'
Re is latin for "in the matter of".
As for your second question, im not entirely sure, but I think after Sir/Madam.
Im assuming this is email? Cause I dont think Re is entirely appropriate in a letter. Thats just me though!
Re: is perfectly acceptable in a letter. In fact, it's standard form.
I never write letters unless im threatening my work with something.
thanks for the help guys, really means a lot
in regards to having re: in a letter, i thought it was the norm when writing about a particular subject?
