    english language styling

    CAN ANYONE TELL ME ABOUT A F-R-E-E SOFTWARE OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE STYLING - EITHER THIS OR AN ONLINE CHECKER, LESS PREFERABLE.

    SOMETHING THAT WOULD SUGGEST BETTER STYLING.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH.[/b]

    Things like White Smoke claim to improve style, but most are not free.

    What do you want the software to do exactly?

    just what the concordance does, but for free: to take text and suggest improved or richer text instead.

    The software I've seen for that has never convinced me- most is as bad as the Microsoft Word Thesaurus. I reckonyou're better off with analytical tools and spending time learning how to use them, rather than hoping for something with the answer.
