Instructions for the Ah-Counter

Home Knowledge Base Meeting Roles Instructions for the Ah-Counter

Your role is to count how many times speakers use filler words such as “ah”, “um”, etc.

Before the meeting, prepare to explain the purpose of your role. You could mention that it is better to speak slower and to pause to gather one’s thoughts than to use filler words, for example.
