Suppose person A writes a letter to someone. I think the standard way for A to sign it off would be 「Aより」.

Would it still be correct if I replaced より with から? Is there any difference in formality and context when it comes to choosing between から and より to mean "from"?

  • @l'électeur Thank you for the link; that indeed answers the second part of my question. I can surmise from it that it would be perfectly acceptable to replace より with から when signing the letter if the recipient is a close acquaintance. Is that right? – SystematicDisintegration Jul 1 '19 at 10:57
