English Grammar Software: How Well Will It Help Me?
Anyone who does a lot of writing needs to constantly look for ways to improve their English grammar and style. English writing software can do a lot to help achieve this, though you’ll need to keep a level head – they’re not going to perform any major miracle.
English writing software, for the most part, can catch common grammar errors. It can even give suggestions when you’re trying to write in a particular style. We all know, though, that good writing is more than just about avoiding double negatives and bad punctuation. In many ways, writing well has to do with clarity and how well you impart your message.
Here’s a little secret: you can intentionally write the most garbled statements using flawless grammar and fool any writing software into thinking that you’re writing is good. It sucks, but it’s true. When you’re using English grammar software to help you, put faith that it can clean up bad entries in your copy, but it won’t change the core ideas that you use to express your message – that bit is all up to you.
All software are based on algorithms. The best English grammar software are usually derived from “learning” systems that read millions of different copy (from newspapers to business reports to blog posts) and processes those input to develop its core set of good practices.
Personally, I’ve seen what grammar software can do with large writing projects and I’m amazed with its results. If you take care of the job at your end, making sure your ideas express your message the best it can, the software can usually manage the rest.
