Have you ever been silly on a public stage? TM Ria dared, with this script for the role of a Grammarian. It’s as silly as it can get but still manages to put the point across well. Would you dare to do so while the entire club’s eyes are on you? We would love to know.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
I wrote a small poem today that I would like to share – “Roses are red, violets are blue, incorrect grammar will never be cute.” Okay I admit it’s not a cute poem and also the fact that I did not write it, I just happened to stumble over it. But it sure is absolutely right. Doesn’t matter how cute our face is, we will never be able to pull off incorrect grammar. So let’s work to fix this. In Toastmasters, every session has a Grammarian whose role is to appreciate good use of Grammar, words, phrases, language etc. but more importantly rectify any incorrect usage of the same as well. This will help us all to improve our Grammar while we improve our public speaking skills.
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 Ria for this submission.
