TM Rio sure is an artist. It’s not because he has a name like one but this draft for the role of Grammarian gave us ample reason to think so. Yes we are judging and tell us if you think we are wrong.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
Everyone appreciates a great work of art – be it poetry, painting, music or a fine dessert. But only a fraction of all world art qualifies to be called great – only the ones that are near perfect. No wonder artists who produce them are forever recorded in history.
Believe it or not but the speeches you deliver are also a work of art and you are an artist. If you aspire to produce your greatest piece of art, flawless grammar is a must.
In Toastmasters, we recognise this. Therefore every meeting has a Grammarian. As the Grammarian today, my job is to keep 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 may all be fine artists.
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 Rio for this submission.
