Sometimes at the end of a letter, after the author’s signature, we see a message headed by “PS”. Have you ever wondered what this “PS” stands for?
Contrary to what some may think, it doesn’t stand for “please” or related. In actual fact, it is abbreviated from “postscript”. The origin of this smacks of Latin (postscriptum) and the inquisitive ones can do their own research.
And if you are really that naggy and have more things to say after “PS”, go ahead and do a “PPS”. And in case you are wondering, “PPS” means post postscriptum aka additional postscript. 🙂
PS.: Got that?
PPS.: I hope so.
PPPS.: Someone’s got to be creative here!
