Usage

The acronym PS originated from the Latin word Post Scriptum, which is an expression for written after. That is how it must have gotten its place at the end of the letter and its real purpose. Ps has been a ubiquitous acronym in handwritten letters and emails and has been in a widespread use since the time letters were a thing.

But today, it is also popular in text messaging too. Even though the medium of communication is different, but the idea remains the same. A PS can be one line, a paragraph or even a couple short paragraphs that are written in a rush most of the time.

It is always placed after you have signed the letter and becomes handy when you suddenly remember the details you forgot to put in the main body.

There are also some alternate acronyms for PS that usually either come after it or are used in place of it. They are-

  1. PSS- Post Super Scriptum
  2. PPS- Postquam Post Scriptum
  3. PPPS- Post Post Post Scriptum
