Role of Grammarian

Imagine you had to impress a room full of people. Would you were a wrinkled shirt and unpolished shoes? Probably not. In Public Speaking, you are always out to impress a room full of people and bad grammar turns off people as much as a wrinkled shirt or unpolished shoes. Worse, while it is easy to fix your shirt and shoes, fixing your grammar is not an overnight job. That is why here in Toastmasters we help our members do it steadily in every meeting. Every meeting has a Grammarian whose role is to appreciate your good usage of language, words, phrases etc. but more importantly rectify any incorrect usage or erroneous pronunciation.

As the Grammarian today, it is also my role to enrich your vocabulary by giving you a word of the day. And the word of the day for today is “resilient”

It’s an adjective and it means able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.

Examples of sentences using the words are –

The natural resilience of Asians helped them recover from Covid.

You can be either a resilient entrepreneur or a failed businessman.

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.
