I’m ScriptFrenzy-ing.

You Asked: How to use the word “Amoral” in a sentence

I know this seems like a strange topic for a post on a baseball blog, but try to bear with me here. (Or don’t. Either way is fine, really.) Lots of people find our blog by searching for some variant of “use the word ‘amoral’ in a sentence”, so for all you peculiar souls, here’s that for which you’ve been looking!

Definition: According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, the adjective “amoral” can be defined thus: lacking a moral sense; unconcerned with the rightness or wrongness of something.

Most common mistake: Confusing “amoral” with “immoral”, adj.: not conforming to accepted standards of morality. The difference here is that while “amoral” is just a state of not caring and/or not knowing about moral rules, being “immoral” means that you know the boundaries of acceptability and simply choose to defy them.

So there’s that.

Why ‘Potentially Amoral’: Because Crane sometimes roots for individual players rather than for entire teams, and she’s pretty sure that’s a “bad thing”. But she doesn’t do it to spite the teams, so it’s not immoral.

Hope that was useful. Join us again next month for “You Asked: A Comprehensive List of Barry Zito’s Ex-Girlfriends”.
