Do you wear a T-shirt with G-U-C-H-I printed in bold up front. If you do, TM Oliver from London has a message for you. Stop wearing them. He also has a grammarian script for you explaining why. Read his submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
A friend of mine wears T-shirts from “G-U-C-H-I” Gucci and shoes by “A-D-D-I-D-A-S” Adidas. No matter what he says or does, that’s the first thing we remember him for. Grammatical errors in your speeches have the exact impact on you. You may have the finest ideas or thoughts and yet those errors can be the first thing people remember. In Toastmasters, we help you to correct them. Every session has a Grammarian whose role is to appreciate the good usage of language but more importantly rectify any errors in grammar or pronunciation so that people can remember you for your ideas.
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 “herald.”
It’s a verb and it means be a sign that something is about to happen.
Here are some examples of the word usage in sentences –
The new company policy heralded layoffs.
The buds in our garden are heralds of spring.
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 Oliver for this submission.
