What is Grammarly, and How does Grammarly Work?
There’s more to excellent writing than grammar and spelling.
Grammarly’s product ensures everything you type upholds accurate spelling, punctuation, and grammar and is clear, compelling, and easy to read. In addition, their suggestions help identify and replace complicated sentences with more efficient ones, refresh repetitive language, and strengthen your writing to say exactly what you mean. When you use Grammarly, you can help improve its suggestions. For example, whenever you hit “ignore” on an unhelpful suggestion, Grammarly gets a little brighter. Over time, their team can adjust the suggestions with high ignore rates to make them more helpful.
Grammarly’s algorithms flag potential issues in the text and make context-specific suggestions to help with grammar, spelling and usage, wordiness, style, punctuation, tone, and even plagiarism. In addition, their suggestions explain the reasoning behind each request so you can make an informed decision about whether—and how—to strengthen an aspect of your writing. Grammarly is also easy to use: Install Grammarly for Windows and get writing suggestions across many desktop apps and websites. This includes:
- MS Office suite (Word and Outlook).
- Hundreds of desktop native apps, including Slack, Discord, and Mail.
- All your favourite web apps (Gmail, Confluence, Jira, Salesforce, Sheets, Hubspot).
Underlying all of Grammarly’s products is a sophisticated artificial intelligence system built to analyse sentences written in English. Grammarly’s computational linguists and deep learning engineers design cutting-edge algorithms that learn the rules and hidden patterns of good writing by studying millions of sentences from research corpora. (A corpus is an extensive collection of text organised and labelled for research and development purposes.) Then, when you write with Grammarly, the AI analyses each sentence and looks for ways to improve it, whether correcting a verb tense, suggesting a more substantial synonym, or offering a more straightforward sentence structure.
As you can imagine, a complex AI system like this one requires a lot of computing power—much more than a personal computer or mobile device can provide. For that reason, it runs in the cloud rather than locally on your device. An Internet connection is all you need to check your writing with a Grammarly product.
