Spelling and grammar check as you type

Grammarian interactive spelling and grammar check When interactive checking is turned on, Grammarian PRO2 watches what you type so you can make corrections as you are writing.

Grammarian PRO2 can alert you when an error is detected with your choice of selectable sounds or voices. You can set different alert sounds for each error type.

Whenever Grammarian PRO2 sees that you have made an error, a list of suggestions appears in a window or in a pop-up menu list, whichever you choose. The list is comprehensive; and so, when you find the correct word, simply double-click it with the mouse or type in the number beside the right word. It will instantly and automatically type the correction for you.

Spelling and grammar check after you finish

Check All SelectionTo check your document after you've finished typing, use Grammarian PRO2's 'Check Selection...' command. Grammarian PRO2 pastes corrections into your document all at once. Interactive checking and after-the-fact checking aren't mutually exclusive.

Grammarian PRO2's spelling and grammar check error catching

Avoid embarrassing mistakes with the world's #1 grammar checker

Grammar Check Error List According to comparative studies, Linguisoft's grammar checker, Grammarian PRO2 X, has been the leader of spelling and grammar checking. And now again, nothing comes close to the accuracy, quality, and intellectual power of this grammar checker.

Grammarian's grammar check has the most comprehensive grammar error checking capability. Nothing has ever matched Grammarian's completeness. You rely on the creditability of the spelling and grammar checker application, and accuracy is the key to creditability. And Grammarian PRO2 has over 300 built-in primary spelling and grammar check writing rules compared to MS Office's 26 error corrections.

Writing Rules, Phrase Usage, Grammar Check, and Punctuation Check

Grammarian PRO2's error checking is categorized into writing rules and writing styles. This allows you to customize Grammarian PRO2's grammar check according to your projected writing style. Errors are grouped into phrase usage, grammar mechanics, and punctuation. Check for stylistic phrase usage errors such as Bookish Phrases, Cliches, Compound Words, Euphemisms, Formal, Faulty, French, Generic, Informal, Latin, Overly Formal, Racial, Redundant, Sexist, Collegiate, Vague, Wordy, Legal, and more.

Check for textbook reference errors as Grammar Mechanics. Grammar errors of this type now range from elementary to undergraduate course study. The grammar error classes of this type include Misplaced Squinting Modifiers, Dangling Modifiers, Missing Prepositions, Subject-Verb Agreement, Antecedent Reference, Improper Parallelism, Double Negatives, and so many, many more.

With over 30 years of research and lab work, Grammarian PRO2 provides you with the most sophisticated selection of error checking ever. This is capable only because of Grammarian's underlying Linguistic technologies and innovative connective algorithms designed and owned by Linguisoft. Decades of research and innovative design make this possible. Simple Natural Language Processing, Generative Grammar, Structural Linguistics, and Cognitive Linguistics are primitive terms compared with Linguisoft's Grammarian PRO2.

Spelling Check

Grammarian PRO2, the most powerful spell checker in the world, includes contextual spell checking and additionally checks for such spelling errors as: word compounding, homophones, spelling out numbers in a sentence, capitalizing of proper nouns, and more. ONLY Grammarian PRO2 even makes contextual spelling suggestions based on how words are used in the sentence.

Homophones-not misspelled but spelling is incorrect...

Have you ever used the word it's as a possessive pronoun when you meant to use its. Or maybe you wrote to complement someone instead of compliment them. Well, these words are not misspelled but the spelling is incorrect depending on the context that the words are used. Grammarian PRO2's contextual grammar check engine spots correctly spelled words that used in the wrong context. No more embarrassing typos like it's-its, complement-compliment, then-than, to-two-too, lose-loose. Homophones are common grammar and spelling errors. And common spelling checkers cannot catch these errors. Grammarian PRO2 easily catches them, and other than a trained human editor, ONLY Grammarian PRO2 catches them.

If you are a dyslexic typist, Grammarian PRO2 now helps you more than ever. Grammarian PRO2's spelling and grammar check has the most comprehensive homophone checking ever. Nothing has ever before been successfully capable of checking and correcting these types of spelling and grammar check errors.

NBC Nightly News:

Americans' bad grammar costly. When the words are far from perfect and the boss has had enough.

Brian Williams, "We're in a bad grammar epidemic in this country. Perhaps, you've seen signs of it yourself in memos, documents, and computer-speak on the internet. Grammar and spelling have really gone the way of the black-and-white television set these days. What happened to the English language? Why has grammar gotten increasingly WORSER?" "It seems us Americans ain't talking too good, don't write worth a lick, and worser with emails." states NBC's Roger O'Neil. "Our grammar, punctuation, and spelling are/is abysmal. And Corporate America is saying STOP! A recent survey found that Fortune 500 companies are spending more than 3 billion dollars per year retraining workers in Basic English. Even writers have trouble writing." Business Writing Instructor, Roger S. Peterson, states "We simply now must salvage American English."
