zero words.Nonfluencies such as like, ya know, um, eh, or ah are a distraction and add nothing to your presentation. Instead of dropping in these space fillers, settle for the silence, it's probably not as long as you think it is. If you need help with this, record yourself delivering the speech and then count the number of nonfluencies, then redo it as much as you need to eliminate those unnecessary distractions.
Since pronunciation and enunciation are closely interrelated, problems arise when the speaker utters one or more syllables incorrectly. Be sure to get a handle on these two elements because errors in these areas can ruin your delivery. To ensure you pronounce and enunciate the words in your speech accurately, always keep a dictionary and a thesaurus handy, prepare your speech in advance, record your speech, then assess your presentation for clarity.
Just in case you want to start improving your enunciation and pronunciation right away, here is a list of suggestions:
