Grammarly for Microsoft Word

 is a helpful productivity tool that users can use to check if there are any grammatical errors in their text while they are typing a composition. Made especially for Microsoft Word, the most commonly used typing application all around the world, the app cuts down the time you would spend searching for errors. It automatically highlights possible grammatical errors, typos, and misspelled words. With this, you can correct them immediately as you type.  The app is very handy to have, especially if you are a writer or you constantly compose long texts. If you are looking for a way to enhance your writing, this app is a no-brainer recommendation. 

Every writer’s friend

What makes Grammarly for Microsoft Word a reliable text editing tool is that as soon as it spots a mistake, it will get your attention by underlining what is wrong. It also understands that not everyone is a grammar genius, and we cannot possibly remember all the rules about grammar. The app will not leave you alone to wonder why something has been marked an error. In fact, not only will it state what needs fixing, but it will also give you possible solutions and suggestions on how to correct your mistake. 

The errors that Grammarly is capable of identifying goes beyond typos and misspelled words. Sentence structure will also matter in this tool, and it will offer suggestions to change some phrases or a whole sentence into what it thinks would sound better. For instance, it will try to point out that you are using a passive voice in your sentence rather than an active one, which is usually better and straight to the point. Correct usage of punctuation marks is also one of the crucial things it will check, seeing that it is one of the most common mistakes that writers tend to not notice. Another good point of Grammarly is that even with all its editing suggestions, it is not an intrusive tool and will not mess up your writing.
