If you write (and who doesn’t), you probably have at least an occasional question about grammar. English as a language is a landmine of confounding rules and exceptions to those rules, and phrases that sound like a form of torture: dangling modifiers, split infinitives, misplaced colons.
Grammarly is here to help. It’s a free browser extension that helps you compose error-free anywhere you write on the Web, including Gmail, Facebook, WordPress, Tumblr, Linkedin, and more. With this amazing app, all you need to do is hover over any word with an underscore to correct a mistake.
As you type or work with an uploaded document, your text is being checked automatically. Grammarly monitors all activity in the editor pane and checks any edits you make. Here’s how it works:
- If you write a sentence that contains a grammatical error, a correction card appears to the right of the text, allowing you to revise in one click. You can choose to accept the correction or override it.
- If you have questions about the correction, Grammarly provides a detailed description explaining the relevant rule. Cards you choose to ignore are removed from the list of correction cards.
- Let’s say you are writing about a research project and using arcane language that may not appear in a standard dictionary. Grammarly provides a customized personal dictionary that allows you to add words that will no longer be highlighted as mistakes.
Grammarly also provides you with document storage, saving your drafts and keeping them all in one place for instant access.
