Salutation Examples


The salutation is the part of a letter that addresses the receiver of the letter. It is the "greeting" to the person reading the letter. There are some standard forms of salutation that are sometimes used.

Examples of Salutation:

Personal Letter:

Dear Julie,
Dear John,
Dear Mom,

Business Letter:

Dear President Obama:
To Whom It May Concern:
Members of the Committee:

Notice that in a personal letter, we use a comma to punctuate the salutation. In a business letter, we use a semicolon.

Email salutations can be more informal:

Hi, Joe!
Hello, Professor Marks,

Hello, all,
Good morning, everyone!
