Deep Grammar - Grammar checker

Deep Grammar - Grammar checker | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

We all make mistakes when we write, and it would be nice if a computer could help us see the ones that spell checkers miss. Grammar checking is hard because language is squishy, so you can’t just write down the rules and check that they are followed. This lack of regularity is why grammar checkers have always been so poor.

In a world of spellcheck and texting abbreviations, few people want to take the time to learn about subjects, objects, and dangling modifiers. Besides, computers can fix our sentences for us. However, as anyone who's suffered an autocorrect embarrassment knows, computers don't always get it right. Language is a human tool and requires the insight of…

Grammaring – A guide to English grammar

Grammaring – A guide to English grammar | Creative Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

"What is Grammaring.com?

Aimed at learners, students and teachers alike, Grammaring.com is a resource portal for people interested in English grammar. The current version is intended for those who are at least at an advanced level of proficiency in English (B2 level or above).

How are the topics organised?

At Grammaring.com English grammar is broken down to its finest details, with even the smallest grammatical items and simplest structures displayed on separate pages. The pages are categorised by topic and shown in a traditional tree structure, and at the same time tagged with grammar and vocabulary terms. If there is a direct relationship between items on different pages, the relevant pages are also connected by links. These can be found under the Related topics and Topics with similar tags sections below the main content on each page. This way, instead of discussing grammar topics individually, we are able to show you how various aspects of grammar are related to each other within the system of English grammar as a whole.
