This one is for English majors and those who have the whole thesaurus memorized.

I would like to ask a researcher to compile a list of common words and
phrases used by everyday people (in English) to say parting words
(such as good byes) or closures of letters. I am requesting atleast 50
entries, and for every one after that, you'll receive a $0.20 per
word/phrase as an extra.

Example of such list is below:

Regular Common:

Good Bye
See you
Take care
Until Next Time

Regular Formal (Letter):

Trully yours,
Respectfully yours,

Regular Informal:

Peace (slang)
One (slang)
See ya

*(Hip-hop slang popularized by Flayvah Flav of Public Enemy, "5000"
means "goodbye." It is derived thusly: "I'm out of here" becomes "I'm
Audi 5000" becomes "5000.")

Thanks for a truly fun cerebral exercise, cap'n.  Pay for the ones you
want -- I was just entertaining myself mostly.

Hi cap'n,

Thanks for the stars and your most generous tip.  And sorry those few
repeats, too.  I was multitasking (and not well, I might add!) while
composing my answer.

As for your verb question, I would like to help but I'm off to the
slave labor camp of my regular job now.

Your question happens to be in the jaws of the Googlebot, so you might
try cancelling that question.  It will only cost a 50-cent posting fee
but if you're in a hurry for an answer, this might be the most
expedient thing to do.

See this link for instructions on question cancellation:

When and if you choose to repost, do *not* copy any of text into your
new question.  In the body of your post type "See Question ID: 369191"
and you can post the question link.  It's okay to use the same
*subject* line.

Hopefully someone's has been busily at work on your question and can
post an answer immediately.

Best of luck and a pleasure being of service to you,
* V *
