Word of the Day
The grammarian is responsible for selecting a word of the day and a sentence illustrating correct usage. The word of the day should be emailed to the club in advance and is added to the agenda.
Before the meeting the grammarian usually writes the word of the day on a white board near the front of the room. At the beginning of the meeting, the grammarian introduces his or her role, announces the word of the day, and demonstrates the word’s proper use by reciting an example sentence.
The grammarian makes notes on the use of English during the course of the meeting. At the end of the meeting, the grammarian reports on inproper use of the language as well creative uses of the language. As a rule, any guest’s misuse of the language is not reported on. If they want to improve, they will join.
