  1. is very smart, but never understood the rules of grammar,
  2. is not highly educated in the English language, but has a lot to say,
  3. finds the use of words, which sound alike, but are spelled differently and have different meanings, very confusing.

Why Do You Care About Spelling, Punctuation, and Word Choice?

money going down the toiletThanks to Sarah Mendes, who contacted me after reading this post, I now can share a report by The Times which states that website owners are paying up to 72% more per click when there is a typo in their content. See more offerings from this source on WebsitePlanet.com.

In addition, people, whose errors show up in publications of any kind (from social media posts to formal presentations), lose credibility as professionals and as “smart” people. Such errors detract from one’s reputation, potential employability, and possible leadership roles.

While you’re considering which “voice” to use, consider also how to improve your spelling, punctuation, word usage, and grammar.

Grammarly is a FREE app, that anyone can download and use instantly. It provides editing help when you are writing everything from emails, to social media posts, to letters or proposals. It does not always recognize the context in which words are used, and it goes by less stringent use of punctuation than some of us were taught to use. However, using it is better than not employing any tools to help you write well.


Benefits and Limitations

Grammarly will not help with every kind of editing, so here is what it can do and what it cannot do.

GRAMMARLY CAN HELP YOU

  • Correct spelling errors
  • Know when to use a comma or a semi-colon
  • Decide which spelling of a word is correct in the context of your sentence: for example, you have the right to bear arms, but she is wearing a dress which shows her bare arms.

GRAMMARLY CANNOT HELP YOU

  • Organize your material in ways that make it read logically and smoothly
  • Find errors in facts or thought processes
  • Rearrange paragraphs
  • Suggest additional materials
  • Research topics
  • Provide graphics, photos, or other images

In conclusion, you still will need an excellent writer and/or editor for many aspects of writing projects, particularly if you need to project a professional image. However, Grammarly is GREAT for helping correct basic spelling and punctuation error in everyday communications, and I highly recommend it.
