Wordmaster

Wordmaster

This segment is designed to increase our vocabulary. As Wordmaster you may choose a word that is interesting and useful but it may be: * not in common use. * often mispronounced. * overused or misused. You may care to say where the word was derived from and you should use the word in its proper context.

The challenge will then be there for other club members to use the word during the evening.

Prepare a sign for the lectern stating your word for the evening. The word should be printed in large letters and in thick pen so that it can be read from the back of the room. A large sheet of paper or manila folder may be used to write the word. Bring along some tape or blue tack to attach the sign to the lectern at the beginning of your segment and leave the sign on show until the end of the meeting.

Alternatively, you can use the white board; however make sure it will be there on the evening.
