A letter is a written message sent by one person to another person or to a group of people. In the olden days, a letter was one of the commonly used sources of communication. It was usually sent by postal mail from one place to another. A letter is always written on paper so that it could be kept as a record for a long time. As time changed, the medium to exchange letters (written communication) has also evolved, paving the way for emails, text messages, etc. however letter writing still remains an important and relevant way to communicate. A letter can be divided into various categories based on the information mentioned in it.

A letter is majorly divided into two categories:

  • Formal letters :

    • A formal letter is a letter that is written in professional language and follows specific rules. These letters are written to the point. Formal letters are further divided into business letters, official letters, social letters, report letters, notice letters, order letters, summon letters, and so on.
  • Informal or personal letters:

    • An informal letter or a personal letter is a letter written to a relative, friend, or to any person sharing personal information or experience. There are no rules while writing an informal letter; it is just an expression of thoughts.
