    Default [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. The bad news is that those who want to post any text and expect it to be turned into perfect English will still have to wait for science fiction to become reality, but the good news is that it could be a very useful tool.

    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?
