French uses complex word arrangements to say "best regards" and "yours sincerely" to finish well written letters, i.e.:
Nous vous prions d’agréer, Monsieur, l’expression de nos sentiments respectueux et dévoués.
We beseech you to agree, Sir, the expression of our respectful and dedicated sentiments.
Can you please give examples of other languages that use complex phrases as standard?
Can you explain why a language type would shy from brevity? (I am bilingual so I understand from daily use, although you can surprise me!)
