If you were in a public speaking workshop, you would have been told to brush up your language skills. Perhaps a complementary grammar book may also be a part of the package. But in Toastmasters, we walk the talk. We help you improve your language in every session so that you become a perfect public speaker in all aspects. To achieve this, we have a dedicated Grammarian in every session. As the Grammarian today, I will appreciate your good usage of language but more importantly rectify any error in grammar or pronunciation so that your language skills stay brushed up.

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 “paramount.”

It’s an adjective and it means more important than anything else.

Here are some examples of the word usage in sentences –

Actively taking part in club meetings is of paramount importance.

The Prime Minister of the country is a paramount figure.

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.
