Abstract
Honorifics or keigo has been a part of the Japanese language for ages. In the past time it was a tool for judging and categorizing citizens after value. The closer you worked for the government the higher position was handed out to you. Today Keigo is about showing respect to one another and to present a humble front. In this essay the functions of Keigo are presented as well as its historical aspect.
