Our Crazy, Mixed-Up Language

By: Val R. Cheatham

Age Level: Middle Grades to College
Cast: 4 or more readers, M or F
Time: 8 to 10 minutes

A witty, fast-paced, group dissertation about the absurdities, inconsistencies, and vigor of our English language. Four or more readers, in rapid-fire sequence, play with syntax, meanings, and applications of words. With bullet-like punctuation they demonstrate the twenty-three different meanings of the word "fix," the fifty different uses of the word "up," and similar words. They verbally show the inconsistencies of plurals, spelling, and pronunciation. The presentation reveals how we use our difficult language to express our personality and get ideas across to others. An excellent script for teaching readers precise enunciation and clarity of delivery. All of this in a delightful presentation piece that entertains as it creates awareness of the joys and fun of English.
