  1. “…common grammatical mistakes, such as consecutive nouns…”

    I have no idea what this means. Rather, “consecutive nouns” is straightforward, but is not a grammatical mistake. Do they think it is, or do they mean something else here?

  2. The best test of these things is to run more-obscure works by great stylists through them. One of my favorite “test pieces” in English is Orwell’s essay “Politics and the English Language.” I can’t speak for the current version of G__y (refusing to give that piece of garbage its entire name for the benefit of search-engine metrics!), but a prior-but-relatively-recent version choked so badly that I had to reboot the machine.

    And if you really want to choke a grammar/spell-checker, just feed it a short work of nonfiction that includes inline citations — whether the insanely picky system of legal citations (yes, Virginia, whether there’s a space after the period varies and is considered significant) or the more relaxed MLA author-and-date-in-parentheses. <sarcasm> But nobody whose writing ever involves actually “showing their work” ever really needs writing assistance, not even under severe time pressure. </sarcasm>

    Much closer to the concerns of fiction writers, none of these programs handle multilingual issues well. Just having a snooty, ill-educated Upper West Side matron insert a couple of sentences in marginally correct French at a cocktail party (just before The Butler Does It) throws off all rule-based systems (whether purportedly “heuristic” or otherwise), and not just for that passage. (Or, if you’re more comfortable, having a Muslim character end a sentence with “in’shallah“… and getting the rhythm, punctuation, spelling, and spacing correct for each between a Moroccan and a Kuwaiti character…)

      • My first thought was ULYSSES.
        Not sure what would happen if you feed it to a potential writing “AI”, though.

  3. Suprisingly, MS WORD recognizes non-english words and if tbe dictionary is installed correctly applies the accents for you. That’s all the assistance I need. Grammar checking I ignore. I consider “grammatical correct” as an option, not a commandment. Sometimes coloring outside the lines works best.
