When introduced by the Toastmaster, please state the following:
“Greetings Mr./Madam Toastmaster, fellow Toastmasters, and guests.
The purpose of the Ah-Counter is to note words and sounds that are used as a “crutch” or “pause filler” by anyone who speaks. During the meeting, I will listen for overused words, including and, well, but, so, and you know.
I will also listen for filler sounds, including ah, um, and er.
I will also note when a speaker repeats a word or phrase, such as “I, I” or “This means, this means.”
At the end of the meeting, I will report the number of times that each speaker used these expressions and how they used them.
Thank you, Mr./Madam Toastmaster.”
