You have to have a sentence already; you can replace its noun 
(receiver or object) with the tile. Just drag the tile over the old 
noun to change it.

Open a viewer on some other object, and drag out the sentence 
"SomeObject start script script1". Drop it on the desktop. Now get a 
tile from another object; you can drop that tile on SomeObject and 
change the receiver of the start script message.
