The grammarian listens to the way members speak and presents a verbal report at the end of the meeting. In this role you will provide feedback to help Toastmasters improve their language skills. Listen to everyone’s word usage. Write down any particularly good uses of language and your reason for selection. These can as well be metaphors or other stylistic techniques, that you notice. Write down any awkward use or misuse of the language – for example: incomplete sentences, sentences that change direction in mid-stream, incorrect grammar. When presenting your report, explain why you thought a certain language was good. Offer the correct usage in every instance where there was a misuse instead of only explaining what was wrong.
