What happens if you accidentally say checkmate?

In chess, there are no rules mandating or prohibiting you from saying "check" or "checkmate" or anything. You do not have to say check or checkmate when making such moves, although it is courtesy. Some people also announce when they promote a pawn, do en passant, or castle. If you say check or checkmate, and you are wrong, then you and the opponent will just laugh it off. If you are continually doing it, your opponent may alert the arbiter to say you're distracting him, but there is no formal rule against this.
