A Grammarian script that makes a point

TM Olivia from Chicago makes a fair point in this script for the role of a Grammarian. Her submission got us thinking – why did we never think along the same lines. Do you get this thought too? Let us know after reading her submission below.

Role of a Grammarian

Each one of us speaks two languages every time we have something to say – one is the body language and the other is the spoken language. And in Toastmasters, we evaluate you on both these parameters. We have Speech Evaluators to evaluate your body language and a Grammarian to evaluate your spoken language.

As the Grammarian, my role is to give feedback on the spoken language used in our meeting today. I will keep a note of all the good use of words, phrases, idioms, figures of speech etc. and also the not so good usage of language and incorrect pronunciations by our members so that we may all learn and improve.

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

It’s an adjective that means “incapable of being expressed or described in words”

An example of the word’s use is –

“Marilyn Monroe’s beauty was ineffable and so were her skills as an artist.”

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