    [Tdol's Blog] Grammarly

    Grammarly



    I had a look at the Grammarly automated proofreader and personal grammar coach that claims to be the world's most accurate grammar checker, presumably in the automated category.

    Thanks! Been trying to look for a grammar checker since a long time ago. If only if it's free. :)

    'If only it were/was free' expresses regret that it isn't free.

    Thanks for the correction :)
    Should I remove 'ago' here? Or it's fine?

    My apologies; somehow I missed 'ago'.. 'Since a long time ago' is actually acceptable. 'For a long time' is also acceptable - and more natural. 'For a long time ago' is not.

    I've linked to this in my own blog. Stand by to repel browsers; my regular readers must be nearing double figures!

    Update 2013.02.25:17.00: By chance I just noticed that the moderator I mentioned earlier on ('Tdol') has in fact written a blog post that deals specifically with Grammarly – which was the starting point for this post. It was written more than 10 years ago, though I imagine the principles are still the same.
    10 years?
