Grammarly Review 2017 – Does it do all it claims to do?

It’s a well-established fact that proofreading your writing can be a very painful task. Yes, some writers smirk at the very mention of proofreading—they never proofread their work because their work is the product of the moment. But people who write for a living—as well as anyone who has to write important emails or assignments—can tell you that proofreading your work before you turn it in or press send is essential.

On paper, it sounds great. Grammarly is advertised as the world’s most accurate grammar checker. It can fix 250 types of errors, and it provides plenty of other features that will help users improve their grammar and vocabulary. A lot of its features are free. It’s available as a browser extension, a Microsoft Office add-in, a desktop app you can install on your computer, or a web page you can visit. But all of that means nothing unless the product works well in practice, and we want to see just how well Grammarly performs. So we’ll take it for a spin and see what we can find out.

The full set of features offered by Grammarly includes a contextual spelling checker, a grammar checker, a punctuation checker, a sentence structure checker, an option to adjust the checks for genre-specific writing styles, a plagiarism checker, and a vocabulary enhancement tool. Grammarly also allows users to choose whether they’ll be using British English or American English, and it has an integrated dictionary and thesaurus.

For this test, we’ll be using a Grammarly Premium account, set to American English. We’ll devise a series of sentences that will test each of Grammarly’s features for some common (and a couple of less common) mistakes. The idea of the test is not to discover the limits of Grammarly and which types of errors are not included in the 250 Grammarly supposedly checks for. The idea is to determine the app’s value by testing it on sentences containing realistic mistakes that people often make.

To test Grammarly’s effectiveness on different styles of writing, we’ll find an example from one of the seven major writing genres Grammarly recognizes. We’ll see how Grammarly does with the checks adjusted for that genre, and then we’ll try it with the checks adjusted for a couple of other genres to determine what the differences are.

Grammarly flagged the comma splice and offered a list of possible solutions: replacing the comma with a semicolon, adding “and” after the comma, or replacing it with a period and capitalizing the “s” in “she.” Grammarly also caught the mistake with “told,” and suggested changing it to “tell” or “be told.” The app also flagged the subject-verb disagreement, and it suggested the proper correction. As for the misused question mark at the end of the sentence, Grammarly didn’t flag it.
