TM Nisha from Mumbai makes a good point in this introduction script as to why we should strive to use good language in our speeches. Kudos to you TM Nisha on putting across your point so effectively. Do send us more such submissions.

Good language is vital to your speech in more ways than you can imagine. Not only does it help you convey your message, but it also lends aesthetics to your speech that retains your audience’s interest. It is precisely this reason why popular public speakers strive to use metaphors, anaphora, triads etc. in their speeches.

In Toastmasters, we recognise this. That is why every session has a dedicated Grammarian. As the Grammarian today, my role is to appreciate the good usage of language, good words, figures of speeches etc. and also note the not so good usage of language so that we work on improving our speech aesthetics.

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.
