“The Sorting hat in Gavel”

Here’s which Hogwarts house you belong to, based on how you handle the Grammarian Role.

 “Hmmmm…difficult, very difficult. Plenty of courage I see. Not a bad mind, either. There’s talent, oh yes. And a thirst to prove yourself. But where to put you?”

 For those of you, new to Gavel, the Grammarian aka the ‘Grammar Boss’, ‘Language-Chief’, ‘W-O-D Police’, is in charge of the Word of the Day more commonly known as WOD. The Grammarian “urges”- gently or maybe not so gently- to use this word as much as possible. Explains the meaning and gives us an example of how it is used.

 Do they stop there? No way.

 The Grammarian also notes down great usage of grammar- so if you have quirky remarks, witty phrases, or inspirational quotes up your sleeve, and even an interesting metaphor, don’t hesitate to drop it in while you speak and the Grammarian will surely applaud you in their report. They will also identify the little slip-ups of grammar and teach us how to say it right! 

 Here’s a breakdown of what house you will be in based on how you play the Grammarian role.

 1. Gryffindor
