A Grammarian’s script for the Grammar Nazi

TM Emma from New York came up with this superb script for the role of a Grammarian in Toastmasters. The title of this post gives away a lot but you will still enjoy reading it. Have a look.

I always thought actors are the only privileged ones who get to enact a character temporarily that would otherwise get them shunned in real life. I mean we all enjoyed Sheldon in Big Bang Theory but having to actually live with him would make us miserable, wouldn’t it?

Thanks to Toastmasters, I get to play a role today that would have otherwise made people around me miserable and earned me the nick name – Grammar Nazi. Yes I am the Grammarian today and I would be looking into all the good usage of English, good phrases, idioms etc. and the not so good usage as well as incorrect pronunciations.

I am also supposed to give you the word of the day which is “requite”

It is a verb that means “return a favor to” or “respond to”

An example of a sentence using the word can be –

My high school crush was careful not to requite my fondness for her. She knew I was Grammar Nazi.

I will keep a track of the number of times the word is used and come back with my report towards the end of the meeting.

Thank You TM Emma for this wonderful script. If you have a script for any role in Toastmasters, let us know here.
