Automatic Grammar Checking Can Let You Down

Written by Jennie

Do you rely on automatic grammar checking when you've completed a piece of work? Grammar checking is certainly important, as it's one of the keys to making a good impression with your writing, but many people don't realise how unreliable automatic grammar checking can be.

Most automatic grammar checking software is designed for business writing. This means that it can be particularly unreliable for grammar checking in other kinds of writing, like fiction, or for situations in which you're using an unusual layout. Often grammar checking software is confused by repetition which is being used to emphasise a point. Grammar checking software can also be confused by complex sentences.

In some circumstances, grammar checking software can even create errors, for instance by deleting words in sentences like "It was that that I liked best," where the second 'that' is interpreted as a result of accidental repetition. If you do use grammar checking software it's important to proof read the result.

Rather than relying on grammar checking software to bring your writing up to professional levels, it's a good idea to do your grammar checking yourself. If you're not too certain of your grammar checking abilities or if you want to be certain that your work will make a good impression, consider employing a grammar checking professional. You'll be surprised by how affordable professional grammar checking can be.

Professional grammar checking is the preferred solution for people who prioritise making a good impression. Automatic grammar checking should be used only for less important work, and you should always be aware that your automatic grammar checking software can let you down.
