A grammarian script that demonstrates great use of a quote

We can all find a great quote. But how well do we fit the quote in our script is an altogether different challenge. Check out how TM Manish has done it fabulously in this script for the role of a Grammarian.

American author William Safire has said “Only in Grammar can you be more than perfect.” Now that’s easier said than done. As an author, all the Williams, be it Shakespeare, Wordsworth or Safire are blessed to be as perfect as a diamond. Sadly, for the rest of us, the muggles , it can be challenging. And to do so while standing on a stage with at least a 100 eyes staring at us only amplifies the challenge. So to help you match the Williams, every Toastmaster meeting has a Grammarian.

As the Grammarian today, my job is to keep track of all the right usage of grammar, good phrases, words etc. but more importantly the not so right usage of words, grammar and incorrect pronunciations as well.

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.
