British expression (need explanation) please?
In a couple of recent books and movies, I have read/hear the phrase “honors to” someone for doing something or another. Usually it’s with regards to politics, but not always.
From the context, it would seem to mean:
> I want to give you credit for….
But it seems to me that there’s a more nuanced meeting—not just complimenting but also showing respect.
Can any of the native Britons shed some light on what the nuance of “honors to ..” means?
