    Re: give respect

    You can give respect to someone. That simply means you respect them.
    You can accept respect (not take it), but that's not a usual concept.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER ****

    Hello, Untaught:

    When I saw your title, I immediately thought of something like:

    "I give respect, and I expect the same."
