How do I use Grammar Checker?

You can correct your text in two ways:

  1. Review Mode
    Place the cursor where you want Ginger Proofreader to start checking your text, and then press F2 or click the “G” in the Ginger Gadget at the top of the screen. Ginger Grammar Checker starts checking the text and prompts you when errors are detected
  2. Live Mode
    As you write text, Ginger highlights every word that requires correcting in light blue. Hovering above the highlighted word opens a bubble with suggested corrections for the incorrect word and for other incorrect words in the same sentence. Clicking on the bubble replaces the incorrect sentence with the corrected sentence that was displayed in the bubble.

What kind of mistakes does Grammar Checker correct?

  • Misspelled words
  • Contextually misused words: For example, a standard spell checker would not detect an error in the sentence “Were are you?” Grammar Checker recognizes that “were” should be “where.”
  • Split words: Grammar Checker recognizes and merges split words. For example, Grammar Checker identifies the error in the sentence “I went in side,” and corrects it to “I went inside.”
  • Incorrect grammar: Grammar Checker provides grammar corrections, including detection and correction of prepositions and other inflections.
  • Insertion of missing words: For example, Grammar Checker will recognize the missing word “are” in the sentence “What you doing?” and suggest inserting it.
  • Verb tense correction

How does Ginger Grammar Checker help me learn from my mistakes?

Ginger Grammar Checker helps you learn from your mistakes by simultaneously displaying your original text next to the suggested correction, allowing you to quickly see mistakes and their corrections next to each other.

What if I want to approve only part of a sentence? What if I want to ignore one word?

If you hover over a misspelled word or phrase, a bubble appears with Ginger’s suggested correction. You can either accept the entire correction, or you can choose to ignore part or all of it. If you click the “x” to the right of the bubble, you can ignore the entire suggestion. If you mouse over a specific word, you can click the “x” over the word to ignore just that word.

How does Ginger Grammar Checker work?

Grammar Checker’s software technology searches the web and analyzes the content of millions of web pages to create statistical linguistic patterns. These patterns are used to understand the probable meaning of a written sentence. When a user writes a sentence, Grammar Checker’s engine compares the sentence structure and meaning to billions of similar sentences from the web to find similar match, and suggests a correction based on the results.

Why is Ginger Grammar Checker better than other spell checkers?

Spell checkers, commonly found in word processing software and email applications, suggest corrections based on the common spelling of a specific word. This approach is problematic, as the correct spelling of a word is often dependent on the context e.g, (Let’s grab a bear)

The Ginger Grammar Checker approach is completely different from other spell checkers. Instead of looking at the word level, Grammar Checker examines the entire phrase. It recognizes words in context and provides the most appropriate correction for spelling and grammar mistakes according to the intended meaning of the sentence. Grammar Checker can also detect when a correctly spelled word is misused, and replaces it with a more appropriate word.
