A splendid speech rendered by a girl.

Is the verb "rendered" used here correct? Or is there any alternate verb?

And could anyone suggest if "splendid" used here is the right adjective?

  • We normally deliver or give a speech. splendid is a term of high praise and it can be used as you have used it. Rendered is not impossible, but it would be a little unusual. Jun 15 '16 at 10:31
  • I don't want to turn into the voice of political correctness here but to me, a something speech delivered by a girl sounds rather patronising...

  • What if the sentence is said by a girl? Jun 15 '16 at 20:06

A marvellous speech was rendered by a girl.

You can use the verb render but it's formal and uncommon in use; you usually give or deliver a speech.

As for the adjective marvellous, you can use it with speech. Depending on the context, you can also use other adjectives such as great, good, interesting, important, effective, splendid, etc.
