So how exactly would it be used? Would one end the letter, then do 追伸:〇 or 追伸、〇 or something else entirely?

comment Difference between ほとんど~ない, めったに~ない and まれ
Thanks for your extensive answer! So one could not use まれ~ない to say that something is 'not rare'? For what it's worth, Tatoeba has a number of examples lik that. ex.: 90歳以上生きることは決してまれではない。 Yahoo Dict also has quite a few in definitions of other words. ex.: 腕の数は普通5本であるが、4本あるいは6本のものもまれではない。 If this is correct, is it also possible to reverse ほとんど and めったに in a similar manner, or is it a unique feature of まれ?

comment When is the katakana form of wo (ヲ) used?
@YOU: AFAIK Kaori Manabe is the only person using を in her name, which is much more commonly written as かおり.

comment Does “敬語” (keigo) just mean “politeness” or is it a technical term specifically relating to Japanese grammar?
Wikipedia - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honorific_speech_in_Japanese - also refers to all three as honorifics: Linguistically, the former two (sonkeigo and kenjōgo) are referent honorifics, used for someone being talked about, and the last (teineigo) is an addressee honorific, used for someone being talked to.

From Wikipedia: An honorific is a word or expression with connotations conveying esteem or respect when used in addressing or referring to a person. By this definition, at the very least teineigo (polite language) is also made of honorifics.

お and ご are honorific prefixes, part of sonkeigo.
