A grammarian’s script that’s absolutely on point

Here is a script for the role of Grammarian that is not just rationally framed but starts making sense from the word go. This submission has been made by TM Mayank from Delhi. Have a look.

Hello Toastmasters

Broken language can be a great tool to infuse humor into your speech. In fact standup comedians often use it tickle the funny bones of their audiences.

Sadly that’s where its utility ends. When we are on any professional platform, speaking a fine language is not just preferred but also expected from the speaker. It lends his or her message an aura of credibility and authority.

This is why in every Toastmasters meeting, we have a grammarian.  As a Grammarian today, my role is to keep a track of all the good usage of English, good phrases, words, idioms etc. but more importantly the not so good usage of English and incorrect pronunciations as well.

I am also supposed to give you the word of the day and the word of the day is “FLEETING.”

It’s an adjective and means “lasting for only a short time”

An example can be – the fleeting moment filled my eyes with tears.

The fleeting happiness of devouring a delicious burger.

Thank you TM Mayank for that befitting script for a Grammarian’s role.
