Obeisance (n)

Here is a context clues worksheet on the noun obeisance. It means “a movement of the body made in token of respect or submission,’ “bow,” “acknowledgment of another’s superiority or importance,” and “homage.” This is not exactly a high-frequency word in English, but I have seen it pop up in more than one place in the various social studies textbooks I’ve encountered over the years, which is why I prepared this document.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
