TM James from London has rightly described in this script for the role of Grammarian why good language is paramount to good communication skill. And he makes a valid point. Read his submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
There are a lot of factors that dictate good communication skills. From your pitch, to your confidence to your choice of words and language used. The last one clearly plays a major role. The language that we use can mean the difference between our message rightly understood and a confused audience wanting more.
That is why in Toastmasters, we work on our language skills in every session under the guidance of a dedicated Grammarian.
As the Grammarian I will 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 can all learn the use of great language.
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 James for this submission.
