RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
Every language in the world has some rules. While it may sound cool to say “Rules are made to be broken,” trust me, these are not the rules you would like to break. If anything, breaking them makes you sound dumb, careless or even uneducated. Doing so on a public stage just amplifies the stake. In Toastmasters, we have a Grammarian to take care of this. The role of the grammarian is to appreciate the good usage of the language but more importantly to bring to light any errors in the use of the language or pronunciations.
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 “behemoth.”
It’s a noun and it means something enormous, especially a large and powerful organisation.
Here are some examples of the word usage in sentences –
Amazon is an online behemoth just like the behemoth river.
The blue whale is a behemoth that dominates the ocean.
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 Mayank for this submission.
