Grammarian script challenging a proverb

TM Naina looks like a seasoned Grammarian for her club. She sent us a script for the role just two weeks back and we have received another submission from her already. Have a look at it below.

A good idea expressed in poor language is like a good person dressed in shabby clothes. No matter how many times you remind people to not judge a book by its cover, the truth is people are going to judge the book, the person and ideas by presentation. In Toastmasters, we help you ensure your good ideas are presented in great language. That is why every session has a Grammarian. As the Grammarian today, my role is to keep a record of all the good usage of language but more importantly the not so good usage so that we may all learn and present our ideas better the next time.

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.
