Grammarian

Taking on this role improves vocabulary, grammar, critical listening skills and evaluation skills

The grammarian plays an important role in helping all club members improve their grammar and vocabulary. As grammarian you:

  • Introduce new words to meeting participants and monitor language and grammar usage
  • Write down the language and grammar usage of all speakers, noting incomplete sentences, mispronunciations, grammatical mistakes, non-sequiturs, malapropisms, etc. Example: "One in five children wear glasses" should be "one in five children wears glasses."
  • At the end of the meeting, give your complete report when called on.
  • Optional: Introduce a "Word of the Week" that helps meeting participants increase their vocabulary; display the word, part of speech, and a brief definition with a visual aid and prepare a sentence showcasing how the word should be used. Note who uses this word or any derivatives thereof correctly or incorrectly during the meeting.
