An ordinary public speaker may not care about grammatical errors littered across his speech. But Toastmasters are no ordinary public speaker and a Distinguished Toastmaster is actually the premium version of a public speaker. And no premium product ever comes with grammatical errors littered across their labels. In Toastmasters, we help you become the premium version of a public speaker. That is why as the Grammarian today I will appreciate the good usage of your language but more importantly rectify any errors in grammar or pronunciation so that you may realise your dream of becoming a premium Distinguished Toastmaster.
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 “austere.”
It’s an adjective and it means severe or strict in manner or attitude or having a plain and unadorned appearance.
Here are some examples of the word usage in sentences –
The only way to prevent spread of the virus is an austere lockdown.
An austere lifestyle goes a long way in building wealth.
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.
