Role of Grammarian

Do you know when’s a good time to learn and improve your language skills? Of course it’s every Toastmasters meeting. That’s because every meeting in Toastmasters has a Grammarian whose job is to appreciate the good usage of language but more importantly correct any error in Grammar or pronunciation. This helps you learn and improve your language skills.

As the Grammarian today I will also help you in enriching you vocabulary by giving you the word of the day. And the word of the day for today is “insinuate.”

It’s a verb and it means suggest or hint in an indirect and unpleasant way.

Here are some examples of the word usage in sentences –

The doctor insinuated that her lungs were damaged beyond recovery.

Once he got rich, he insinuated everyone around him of their pity bank balances.

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.
