Taking on this role improves observational and listening skills
The purpose of the Ah-Counter is to note any overused words or filler sounds used as a crutch by anyone who speaks during the meeting. Words may be inappropriate interjections, such as and, well, but, so and you know. Sounds may be ah, um or er. As Ah-Counter you:
- Request a copy of the Ah-Counter’s log from your sergeant at arms. If a log is not available, be prepared to take notes.
- When introduced during the club meeting, explain the role of the Ah-Counter.
- In the Ah-Counter’s log, record overlong pauses, overused words and filler sounds relied upon too often by all speakers. Examples include: and, but, so, you know, ah, um.
- During the evaluation portion of the meeting, report your observations when called upon.
