How do you use salutation in a sentence?
Many people are unsure of what salutation to use in a letter. Unless you know the person well, it's best to use a formal salutation versus a casual one.
The appropriate salutation depends on whether you also are a solicitor in your own country. If you are a female attorney too, then the appropriate salutation is "Chère Consoeur".

If you are not an attorney, then the appropriate salutation always is 'Cher Maitre' or simply "Maître".
Anotonyms for salutation (meaning greeting) would be dismissal or farewell. Antonyms for salutation (meaning praise) are disapproval, demerit, calumny, condemnation, or criticism. We say hello with a salutation; we say goodbye with a valediction. This is also the term for the polite closing in a letter.

The relationship between the salutation and complimentary close is that they should be equal in familiarity or formality, based on the writers relationship of the writer and the recipient. For example, the salutation "Hi Mom" wouldn't close with "Most Sincerely", or the salutation "Dear Mr. Collins" would not close with "Love Ya".
