    Re: question

    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

    Re: question

    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,

    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.
