    uage of reverential

    reverential - showing a lot of respect

    I would like to talk about the adjective above. I find it easier to understand the meaning of a word when I use it in a sentence.

    (1) I show a reverential attitude toward my idol.

    (2) I am reverential toward my neighbor who dedicates himself to helping the needy.

    Could someone please check to see if I am using the adjective correctly in these sentences? Thank you for your help.

    Re: uage of reverential

    Your sentences are fine.

    As a BE speaker I'd say 'towards' rather than 'toward'.
