Insult may essentially involve a kind of shock, a disruption of expectations, a slap in the face. In honor one seeks to save face and social status may be preserved by social rules and rituals, such as dueling, which may in turn raise problems of their own. Notions of competitive honor are entangled with images of masculinity.

Keywords:   honor, shock, slap, face, dueling, status, masculinity
