A Grammarian script with a Google reference

Put in a Google reference in anything and it kindles instant interest. TM Noah from Toronto knows how to play this game and this submission is an apt example. Noah has brilliantly factored Google in coming up with a wonderful script for the role of Grammarian. Take a look.

Role of Grammarian

You could ask Google anything in broken English and Google would still come up with millions of results in no more than a second. Google has tons of super fast processors that work to rectify your query and answer it simultaneously. Sadly your audience has just one brain and that too is occupied with multiple tasks at any point of time. It therefore makes sense that as a speaker you speak the right language and save your audience extra processing power. To help you in this endeavor, we have a dedicated Grammarian in every session. As the Grammarian today, my role is to appreciate the good usage of language but more importantly rectify any error in grammar or pronunciation so that you may work on the same.

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 “conundrum.”

It’s a noun and it means a confusing and difficult problem or question.

Here are some examples of the word usage in sentences –

Choosing your path in Toastmasters is a real conundrum.

Deciding my outfit of the day is a conundrum I face daily.

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.
