Here is the first submission by TM Ritika from Delhi for the role of a Grammarian. It’s short, to the point with a great selection for the word of the day. Read it below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
Good language is the backbone of good communication skills. You may have all the ideas, intentions and inspirations but to communicate them fairly you need good language. In Toastmasters, we work on both these aspects – communication and language. The entire program is about enhancing your communication skills and to achieve it we help you in enhancing your language skills. For this purpose, every session has a Grammarian whose role is to appreciate your good usage of words, phrases, quotes etc. but more importantly bring to notice any not so good usage of language and pronunciation errors as well. This will help you improve your language skills and consequently your communication skills.
As the Grammarian today, I am also tasked with helping you enrich your vocabulary by giving you a word of the day. And the word of the day for today is “cupidity”
It’s a noun and it means greed for money or possessions.
Examples of sentences using the words are –
Stock market and cupidity is a bad cocktail.
They did not fall out of love. He fell into cupidity.
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 Ritika for this submission.
