    reverence / deference

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to explain to me the difference between the meanings of the “reverence” and “deference”?

    1.“Kill reverence and you've killed the hero in man”

    2.The funeral was arranged with deference to the family of the deceased.

    In my opinion both render homage, respect, veneration, regard, esteem etc.

    Thank you for your efots.

    Re: reverence / deference

    Hello, I'm The French,

    I think the only difference is the meaning of the word 'reverence', this word suggest one admiration about someone.

    Deference is more use for the idea of respect.

    I am certainly close to the good answer, I think.

    Have a nice day.
