RESPECT (_third-person singular simple present_ RESPECTS, _present participle_ RESPECTING, _simple past and past participle_ RESPECTED) * to have respect for. _She is an intellectual giant, and I RESPECT her greatly._ * to have regard for something, to observe a custom, practice, rule or right _I RESPECT your right to hold that belief, although I think it is nonsense._ * to abide by an agreement. _They failed to RESPECT the treaty they had signed, and invaded._ * To take notice of; to regard as worthy of special consideration; to heed. * Shakespeare Thou RESPECTEST not spilling Edward's blood. * Francis Bacon In orchards and gardens, we do not so much RESPECT beauty as variety of ground for fruits, trees, and herbs. * (transitive, dated except in "respecting") To relate to; to be concerned with. * J. Lee Glandulation RESPECTS the secretory vessels, which are either glandules, follicles, or utricles. * (obsolete) To regard; to consider; to deem. * Ben Jonson To whom my father gave this name of Gaspar, / And as his own RESPECTED him to death. * (obsolete) To look toward; to face. * Sir Thomas Browne Palladius adviseth, the front of his house should so RESPECT the South […] ANTONYMS * dis * disrespect USAGE NOTES It is possible that a confusion between the different meanings of _respect_ affects the attitudes of people and organizations. For example: * The freedom of religion implies that we must respect protect THE RIGHT OF ANYONE to believe whatever they wish, to act within the law in accordance with their beliefs, and not to be discriminated against on account of their beliefs. * Changes in the use of the word _respect_ seems to have shifted our attitudes towards the quite different notion that we must behave respectfully politely towards their beliefs, and not criticize them. * This is a restriction on freedom of speech, and is inherently hypocritical—anyone with any view on religion must necessarily believe that those who believe differently are deluded, although their rights must be respected observed. The distinction between the two meanings can be shown by paraphrasing Voltaire: "_I totally disrespect what you say, but absolutely respect your right to say it._" DERIVED TERMS * respectability * respectable * respected * respectful * disrespect (note: also has noun meaning) TRANSLATIONS
