The sign of peace is in the Roman Style

What is "the Roman style" for the sign of peace?

And -- if the laity received kneeling, does that mean they received on the tongue?

How will I learn if I don't ask questions . . . ;-)

Not sure what is meant by the Roman Style for the sign of peace. In the Maronite Church, it is done in a very reverent manner beginning at the altar, handed on to acolytes then to 4 children who "carry" the peace (hands folded) to the first person in each pew.

And -- if the laity received kneeling, does that mean they received on the tongue?

Yes ... I posted the video above. You can watch the entire mass ... and probably figure out what is meant by the Roman Style for the sign of peace, as well.

If you can get the vid to work, start at 41 minutes. Looks like Roman style is what we usually see from the popes. It's not a handshake. It's approaching the other, clasping the upper arms or shoulders, and pressing cheek to cheek. Doesn't look any different from other masses I've seen celebrated by recent popes.
