Check out Grammarly. As a creative writing student, adverbs were the revered as the most naughtiest of no-nos. So that’s why I find it funny that a grammar-checking app is adverbarial in nature. The name aside, this tool is way too cool for school.
I think it functions as one of those “Web 2.0” tool thingies. It is a two-way communication between what you’re writing and/or uploading and the app. Grammarly checks your grammar while you write. So for a writerly type like me (har, har), it’s super-funtastic to use.
Check course outlines before handing them out to those keener English students or make sure students’ grammar is Grammarly next time you have to read a twenty-page paper. 😉
