A Grammarian script with a humorous quote

A quote in any situation works great but a humorous quote is a cherry on the cake. TM Angela from New York found one quote that does so perfectly for the role of Grammarian. Read her script below.

Tom Sibley once commented “I always confuse the word exotic and erotic, that made for a very awkward conversation at my local pet store.” Tom Sibley may get away with it but as a speaker speaking on a public platform, you most definitely won’t. It is therefore vital that we make use of the right words less we embarrass ourselves. To help you with this, every session in Toastmasters has a Grammarian.

 As the Grammarian today, my job is to keep track of all the right usage of language, good phrases, words etc. but more importantly the not so right usage of words and incorrect pronunciations as well so that we don’t embarrass ourselves.

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.
