Here is an interesting script for the role of Grammarian by TM Aditi from Mumbai. Aditi here describes how every Toastmasters meeting is basically a second opportunity to revisit your grammar lessons from school. Read her draft below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
Everyone had language lessons in school. But not every one of us either remembers them or simply ever got a good grip on them. Some of us simply chose to excel in other areas of life. Thankfully for us, Toastmasters gives a second opportunity to redo our lessons. That’s because every session in Toastmasters has a Grammarian whose role is to appreciate your good usage of language but more importantly correct any error in grammar or pronunciation so that you can redo your language lessons.
As the Grammarian 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 “arduous.”
It’s an adjective and it means involving or requiring strenuous effort.
Here are some examples of the word usage in sentences –
The North Pole is an arduous journey.
Once you get old, even a flight of stairs can be an arduous exercise.
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 Aditi for this submission.
