Don’t confuse “slap” with:

Clap: To applaud. Do this to show support, appreciation, or call a servant into your chambers.

Snap: To make a sound with your thumb and finger; it’s what separates humans from apes.

Spank: To strike the bum (as punishment). Gymglish was very naughty and needs a spanking please.

Slaps in the news

This month, French president Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face during a public appearance.

Though the perpetrator will only receive a slap on the wrist, it was a slap in the face for decorum.
