According to Webster: “par·ti·ci·ple,” A verb that in some languages, can function independently as an adjective, as the past participle baked in “We had some baked beans,” and is used with an auxiliary verb to indicate tense, aspect, or voice, as the past participle baked in the passive sentence “The beans were baked too long.”

According to Webster: “com·mu·ni·ca·tion,” (in context) The exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, by speech, signals, writing, or behavior.

civility 1a

According to Webster: “ci·vil·i·ty,” Courteous behavior; politeness.

respect 1

According to Webster: “re·spect,” To show deferential regard for; esteem.
