TM Neha from Mumbai makes a strong case here about the importance of correct grammar and right usage of language. In a frank exchange of messages, she revealed that it was a certain Tattoo Artist who sparked the idea for this script. Read her submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
Would you hire a Tattoo artist who wasn’t sure of his spellings? How about a lawyer too fond of SMS language? Or just imagine reading a novel that began with “It was the very best of times. It was the very worst of times.”
All of you would agree that correct usage of language is a key skill everywhere. Well, Toastmasters is no exception. No wonder every session in Toastmasters has a Grammarian.
As the Grammarian today, my job is to keep track of all the good usage of the language, good phrases, words etc. but more importantly the not so good usage and incorrect pronunciations as well so that we can all be better at this key skill.
I am also supposed to give you the Word of the Day. It’s “Amity”
It’s a noun and it means “Friendly relations”
An example of a sentence using the word is
“We live in amity with our neighbours”
I hope everyone uses this word to the maximum in our meeting today. I will be back with my report towards the end of the meeting.
Thank you so much TM Neha for this submission.
