Re: Nascent Online Grammar Checker
I just want to check that it is only designed to identify errors and not to correct them.
The first sentence I entered was "I could of done it better". It correctly highlighted "could of" as an error, but I couldn't see a correction. However, of course, it identified the error perfectly.
The second one I tried wasn't so successful. I entered "There's a cat and a dog in the room". It highlighted "There's" quite correctly and when I changed it to "There are" and the highlight vanished. Unfortunately, in both cases, it inexplicably highlighted "the room". I can't fathom any reason why it would do that.
It also doesn't seem to like BrE spellings. I entered "I will memorize it now" which showed no problems. I changed it to "memorise" and it highlighted the word as an error.
Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
