Grammarly Overview

I’m sure that many would already be familiar with the linguistic industry leader, Grammarly (especially when awaiting the ads on YouTube to swiftly pass). Ring a bell? Perhaps not. Well not to worry, let’s take a peek into the world of Grammarly & what exactly they can do for you.

Grammarly is essentially a language editor: but not just any autocorrector. Instead, Grammarly uses AI to ensure that whatever you may write is gauged on grammar in terms of context, spelling & punctuation. It’s a language processing tool that helps to condition your writing. Whilst doing so, it’s also a useful live use tool to better understand & learn how to write effectively. Neat stuff, right?

Adding icing to the cake, it’s free as a Google Chrome extension. So if you want to improve the tone that you’re setting when typing an email or a writeup, it’ll certainly add substance to your content. Sprucing up style can be very useful, especially when performing social media projects. Audience engagement is key to achieve & using Grammarly can do just that. Ensuring readability, clarity & plagiarism free writing (the latter being available of Premium plans) is also prime for personal development.

As security features to take care of GDPR & other privacy laws are embedded within the business version, even enterprises can be surely reliant on using Grammarly for their work. They have an unparalleled reach, as their product range includes Grammarly@edu, wherein teachers & experts can assist others with writing. The Grammarly keyboard is also available for mobile users. Paid plans for both pros & businesses are around $12 per month (billed annually).

Well enough of its praise: let’s see what are the not so bright areas of Grammarly, starting with:

Security concerns: a reported breach of data where potentially typed material can be hacked into via the Chrome extension
As with most language checking software, user discretion is advisable, as there are unnecessary edits suggested

So there you have it. Grammarly: a fairly comprehensive package aimed at improving one’s writing. Opt for the free version as a Chrome extension for individual use. If you need more features, it’s available for a mere sum of around $12 per month. Nevertheless, there will always be the concern of data integrity & validity of its work.
