Grammarian & Ah Counter – Description of Meeting Roles
Published on 28/03/12
This post lists recommendations for one role. For other roles, see the disambiguation.
- Briefly explain your role: counting ‘ahs’ and other fillers and watching good/bad language
- Count the use of ‘crutches’ such as ‘ah’, ‘um’ and ‘err’ and filler words such as ’like’, ‘aand’, ‘you know’, ‘so’, ‘well’, etc.
- Comment on the positive and negative uses of English during the meeting. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, you don’t have to do it. Do something else instead of it – a chance to apply your own ideas here! It should relate, however, to the Grammarian role, to improvement of the way we express ourselves etc.
Check in the CL (Competent Leadership) manual if this role fulfills any of the projects of the manual. If it does, don’t forget to bring your CL manual to the meeting and before the meeting ask someone to evaluate you in that role.
