celebrator, celebrant, celebrity





redhakaw
1.) my boss announced today's birthday "celebrator"

I chuckled and whispered to my seatmate, "it's celebrant, not celebrator"
and then he looked at me flabbergasted.

2.) my daughter is having a birthday party
her aunt just got in the house and shouted: "where is the birthday celebrity?!"

I thought hey, that's a new way to say it huh.



so does any one know how to use these words?

any takers?

Hey Redhakaw, I don't think people check this section often. All three cases are used incorrectly I believe. It's very confusing, even native english speakers can't explain it.

1. I am having a celebration
2. He is the celebrator (the one being celebrated)
3. I am the celebrant (one who celebrates)

Hope that helps!
