It’s said that if you can’t convince them, confuse them. TM Henry from London didn’t have to convince his club members about the importance of the role of a Grammarian in Toastmasters and yet he chose to confuse them with this complicated script. But we are not going to spoil it for you. Go take a read.
RELATED: How to do the role of a Grammarian?
The philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein has said “The limits of my language are the limits of my world.” Your knowledge and command over language dictates the limits of what you can achieve in this world. Conversely speaking, if you wish to enhance what you achieve in this world, enhance your command over your language. It therefore becomes crucial that we work on our language skills. In Toastmasters, we help you achieve this by appointing a dedicated Grammarian in every session. Today, I am your dedicated Grammarian. My role is to appreciate the good usage of language, words, phrases but more importantly rectify any incorrect usage of language or pronunciations so that we may all increase our command over the language.
I am also supposed to enrich your vocabulary by giving you a 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 Henry for this submission.
