What is the assyrian word for HONOR? 

Is it Qadra or E'qara?

Isn´t that "respect" ? We say "yuqro" in western so couldn´t it be "yuqra" in eastern Assyrian?

It could mean respect also, sure.  The meanings of the words "respect" and "honour" sometimes overlap even in English.  "Yuqro" and "ee-qaa-ra" derive from the same root consonants.

I thought that eeqara is respect as well.  Also, "yuqra" in easter Assyrian means "weight".

Oh wait, we use that for "weight" too :) Maybe I am too coined by the German language, the Germans must have for everything an other word while in such language like Assyrian words can have an other meaning in different contexts.
