Hello everyone.

It is said that a man is as good as the company he keeps. I feel glad to be in company of some fine Toastmasters on their way to achieve greatness in life. Who knows we can be sitting in company of a future Ted speaker or start up CEO or maybe even a Nobel Prize winner. To those future achievers, here is a truth – you don’t want to get up on stage and say “I have been working for this prize since 10 years” only to be reminded by twitter next day that it should have been “for 10 years”.  I have therefore volunteered to be the Grammarian today. As a Grammarian, my role is to look for all the good usage of English, good phrases, words, idioms etc. and also the not so good usage and incorrect pronunciation.

I am also supposed to give you the word of the day. It’s “Mellifluous”

Its and adjective and it means “pleasingly smooth and musical to hear.”

An example of sentence using the word can be –

Her mellifluous voice was sure to earn her an Oscar prize.

I hope you use this word to the maximum and also thank me in your future award acceptance speeches. I will come back with my report towards the end of the meeting.

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