I received a hilarious WhatsApp message the other day. It said “Dear people. Before is spelt as B-E-F-O-R-E and not the letter B plus the number 4. We speak English, not bingo.” It’s true that different people may have different accent, different background or simply different choice of words. But it’s the rules of the language and right pronunciation that enables others to still follow what you say. In Toastmasters, we understand this. That is why every session has a grammarian.

As the Grammarian today, my role is to keep a 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 be on the same track.

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.
