Amatory, a noun, is the state of being a member of the Conservative party in either the United Kingdom or Canada. In both countries, the nickname of the Conservative party is the Tory party.

This gets confusing when using amatory in speech. Grammatically, a member of the Conservative party should say “I am amatory.” However, the double “am” doesn’t exactly roll easily off the tongue, now does it? Thus, most Conservatives say simply “I amatory,” rather than “I am amatory.” They also say a lot of other silly things, a great many of which we here at The Words Project disagree with, and in some cases strongly disagree with, but let’s avoid politics, shall we?
