civility

attitude or manner expressing courtesy or politeness. It may be regarded as a basic aspect of moral education, one commonly induced in early years of socialisation. However, its forms are cross-culturally variable as, for instance, in regard to the position and manner of male accompaniment of a female along a public walkway, or more generally in the form of mutual exchange considered appropriate in moments of greeting and parting.
