Closing Sentence Letter
Letters are written communication tools. In order to be understood by the reader, in writing (official), the writer needs to consider the factors of simplicity, politeness of language, sentence accuracy, accuracy and accuracy in the choice of words and sentence structure, as well as harmony between them. However, the prevalence factor also needs to be considered. Therefore, the contents of a letter always consist of an opening section, a content section, and a closing section.

The closing part of the letter can be the expectation of the sender of the letter or thank you to the recipient of the letter. Until now there are still sentences in the closing section of the official letter as follows.

(1) So that you understand.

(2) For your attention, thank you.

(3) Thus, for your attention, we thank you.

Every letter sent is certainly expected to be understood by the recipient of the letter. Therefore, statements like in sentence (1) are no longer needed. In addition, the statement in sentence (1) "So that you understand it" is not a complete sentence because it does not have a subject and a predicate.
The statement is only in the form of a clause that is not accompanied by the parent sentence. Therefore, the statement can be said to be wasteful because it is not informative. In sentence (2) the use of the pronoun "Thank you" does not clearly refer to whom. The form is more appropriate if replaced by the greeting for the second person, such as you, Mr, or you because the communication that occurs in the letter is the communication between the first and second parties. In addition, the use of affixes in spoken words does not make sense because logically the question will arise, "Who is to say that thank you." The letter of thanks is conveyed to the letter recipient. Therefore, the concluding sentence of the letter that can be used is, At your attention, we extend the greeting
thanks. In the example of the closing sentence of letter number (3), Thank you for your attention. Such a word is not needed at the conclusion of the letter because the use of the word does not provide any information. In addition, the use of the word hatur is not appropriate because the word haturkan is still regional in nature, while the letter he made is an official letter, which demands the use of standard Indonesian vocabulary. Therefore, the word haturkan is more appropriate if it is replaced by the word say if we emphasize the desire to say something, or the word to say if we really want to convey something, namely a thank you to the recipient of the letter. So, in writing official letters, in the closing sentence of the letter you should not use words that are still regional and do not use words that do not provide clarity of information.
