Language[ edit ] Respect is shown in many different languages by following certain grammatical conventions, especially in referring to individuals. An honorific is a word or expression often a pronoun that shows respect when used in addressing or referring to a person or animal.
Typically honorifics are used for second and third persons; use for first person is less common. Some languages have anti-honorific first person forms like "your most humble servant" or "this unworthy person" whose effect is to enhance the relative honor accorded a second or third person.
For instance, it is disrespectful to not use polite language and honorifics when speaking in Japanese with someone having a higher social status. The Japanese honorific "san" can be used when speaking English. In work-related situations, people address each other by their title.
At home people often refer to each other by nicknames or terms of kinship. When a Chinese person asks someone their age they often do this so they know how to address the person.

For example, it is recommended to kiss the hands of parents, grandparents and teachers. Also, it is narrated in the sayings of Muhammad that if a person looks at the faces of parents and teachers with a smile, he will definitely be rewarded by Allah with success and happiness.
This also counts for money, which is considered to be a manifestation of the goddess of wealth Lakshmi. For instance, when a child is greeting his or her grandparent, they typically will touch their hands to their grandparents' feet.
In Indian culture, it is believed that the feet are a source of power and love. Many gestures or physical acts that are common in the West can be considered disrespectful in Japan. For instance, one should not point directly at someone. The duration and level of the bow depends on many factors such as age and status.
If a woman does not wear cosmetics or a brassiere, it is possible that she will be considered unprofessional or others may think she does not care about the situation.
Chinese honorifics Unlike Japanese culture, it is not necessary in Chinese culture to bow to one another as a greeting or parting gesture. Bowing is generally reserved as a sign of respect for elders and ancestors.
When bowing, they place the fist of the right hand in the palm of their left at stomach level. The deeper the bow, the more respect they are showing. In Chinese culture, there is not much participation in physical contact, especially when doing business because this can be seen as too casual, thus disrespectful.
It is considered rude to slap, pat, or put one's arm around the shoulders of another. Same-sex friends will often be seen with their arms around one another, holding hands, and other signs of physical affection. Smiling or being friendly to someone you do not know well can be considered rude and too familiar.
It is also common to see Chinese women covering their mouths when they laugh. Traditionally, a woman who laughed too loudly was considered to be uncouth and ill-bred.I did not grow up wearing a chapel veil, but I remember hearing the stories from my mother about being required to wear one to Mass.
It never occurred to me why a veil was required at one point and then all of sudden it was not.
