••
honor, deference, homage, obeisance, reverence
The Ten Commandments instruct us to "Honor thy father and mother." But what does honor entail? While all of these nouns describe the respect or esteem that one shows to another, honor implies acknowledgment of a person's right to such respect (honor one's ancestors; honor the dead). Homage is honor with praise or tributes added, and it connotes a more worshipful attitude (pay homage to the king). Reverence combines profound respect with love or devotion (he treated his wife with reverence), while deference suggests courteous regard for a superior, often by yielding to the person's status or wishes ( show deference to one's elders). Obeisance is a show of honor or reverence by an act or gesture of submission or humility, such as a bow or a curtsy (the schoolchildren were instructed to pay obeisance when the Queen arrived).
