    Hi moreram,

    I'd say "My sincere respect to you" if you're conveying it to that person.
    On the contrary, if you're showing respect towards a person, or you admire that person for his ideas and qualities, then you say, "I've respect for our teacher who has been so patient and understanding."

    Regards
    Kev

    kevchua,

    Thank you.

    According to your comment:

    ""I'd say "My sincere respect to you" if you're conveying it to that person."

    That is, if I am directing or addressing that respect to that person, correct?

    Regards,

    Default Re: question

    Answer: so

    Use "so" when there is a result, or an effect due to an earlier cause, action or situation.

    Other examples:

    I was tired, so I slept early. (tired - sleep early)
    They came home early, so they avoided the rain. (came home early - avoided rain)

    Therefore,
    We didn't want to get into trouble, so we parked in the lot
    around the corner. (didn't want trouble - parked in the lot)

    This sentence means the same if you write it this way:

    We parked in the lot because we didn't want to get into trouble.
