TM John has found the perfect quote for the role of Grammarian. It almost seems that it was quoted by a Toastmaster because the description perfectly fits the role of Grammarian. We checked though and found it wasn’t. Nevertheless, it makes for a great Grammarian script. Read his submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
Cesar Chavez, an American Civil Right Activist has said “A language is an exact reflection of the character and growth of its speakers.” When speaking, our language gives subtle cues to our listeners about our background, education and in general how refined are we. As a public speaker, good use of language can therefore fetch brownie points in creating great impression upon our audience. That is why 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 create fantastic impressions upon our audience.
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 John for this submission.
