 英语应用文写作之便条写法 (03/02)

便条是一种简单的书信。虽然内容简单,但却有其独特的风格。主要目的是为了尽快地把最新的信息、通知、要求或者活动的时间、地点转告给对方。常见的便条有欠条、留言和请假条等。
  特点:
文内语言尽量通俗口语化,简单扼要,直截了当,无需使用客套语言。In a roundabout way
  便条虽简单,但中心务必突出,更要注明活动的时间及地点。
  便条不需邮寄,不用信封。通常请人代为转交。有时可写在留言板和留言簿上。
  基本写作格式
  便条内容和类型不尽相同,可以灵活变通。但各类便条必须包括以下几个基本要素;1)Date:便条日期2)Salutation:称呼3)Body:正文4)Signature:署名
  样例
  欠条;留下字据,表示欠某人某物。条据上需写明钱物名称和数量、立据人及日期。不得涂改。

Dear Li,
As the Spring Festival is drawing near, I’m very glad to invite you to come to a dinner party with several other friends of ours. I’m sure we will have a very happy time and enjoy ourselves thoroughly. Would you like to come on time at 5:00 p.m. today, to Room 6 of Lijing Hotel?
Yours always,
Jiayang
 
  请假条:往往指由于生病或特殊情况不能亲自当面请假,用假条的形式告假。所以,请假条大多是病假条。可以自写,也可请他人代写。写假条最重要的是说明原因和请假的期限。
