5 Grammar Tools to Help with Your Writing

Even the most experienced writers still make mistakes. Proofreading your own could often lead to errors. After all the effort you put into your writing, you do not want a simple mistake to undermine it all. There are many great tools available to minimize grammar and spelling mistakes. 

Here are 5 Grammar Tools to Help with Your Writing:

 

Grammarly

Grammarly is a popular writing assistant tool that follows you almost everywhere you want to write. It not only checks for grammar and spelling errors as you type. but it also proofreads your work and suggests corrections for mistakes or concise writing, as well as explains each revision. This, in turn, could help you learn from your mistakes along the way.

 

Hemingway Editor

Hemingway is a web-based text editor where you can use it to check your writing for readability, grammar, and spelling errors. It aims for clear and simple sentence structures, and provides feedback to make sure that your work is easy to read, labeling complex sentences as either “hard to read” or “very hard to read.” Additionally, it flags the use of passive voice, excessive adverbs, and much more. 

 

Ginger

Ginger is also a spelling and grammar checker tool that helps you to improve your writing skills. It is available as a browser add-on, correcting grammatical mistakes–including punctuation, sentence structure, and style. Its free version limits the checking to 350 characters only. By signing up for Ginger, you can get more benefits from it for free. Signing up gives you access to the Ginger Writer app, where it allows you to copy and paste your writing to look for errors. It works with Microsoft Word, but not with Google Docs.

 

After the Deadline

Also available as a browser extension, After The Deadline is an open-source spell checker tool that comes with a free grammar and readability check. After it is installed in your browser, you need to go to the settings to check the options you want the add-on to look out for. You can run the tool while writing your posts by clicking on the spellcheck icon at the bottom right corner of the editor.

 

ProWritingAid

Last but not least, ProWritingAid is one of the more robust grammar checkers besides Grammarly. It checks grammar, punctuation, spelling, and style issues, and provides detailed feedback on your writing. Available in its free and premium versions, it has over 20 different writing reports.

Conclusion:

Grammar is important, especially when the things you write will be seen by hundreds, if not thousands, of people. You can use these great tools as an aid for your writing; however, do not solely rely on them. Although these tools are pretty reliable, it never hurts to ask a friend, co-worker, etc. to take a second look at your work.
