Here is a script for the role of a Grammarian by TM Angela from New York that hits the nail on its head. It’s simple yet elegant Have a look.

Role of a Grammarian
Role of a Grammarian in Toastmasters

A philosopher once said, half of good philosophy is good grammar. And the only reason I am quoting him today is because his words has both good philosophy and good grammar.

Fellow Toastmasters, if you want your words and ideas to be quoted by others, good grammar is a pre requisite. That is why every Toastmasters meeting has a Grammarian.

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 pronunciations.

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

It’s a noun that means “to cause confusion or puzzlement”

An example of a sentence using the word is –

Math problems often perplex students.

I hope everyone uses this word to the maximum. I will be back with my report towards the end of the meeting. Thank You.
