Grammarly Review: Is It Worth It?

In this Grammarly review we answer the question: is it worth it?

Firstly – why should you listen to what I have to say about Grammarly? Well, I have been a proofreader and editor for over 10 years at London Proofreaders. Thus, I have a lot of experience when it comes to writing and grammar checking software plus a great knowledge. Why is my knowledge of grammar important? Well it means I know if Grammarly is making correct grammatical changes or not.

For me Grammarly free version is the next (and important) step up from Microsoft Word’s spell checker.

In this review I will look at both the Grammarly free version and the paid version, Grammarly Premium, looking at the pros and cons of each.

PROS

Explains grammar rules –

When Grammarly finds an error you can click on the suggestion and find out WHY what you have written is wrong. In this way you will learn correct grammar and help improve your writing by AVOIDING making the mistake in the future.

Customisation

You can choose several settings to fit the style of document your are running Grammarly Premium on.

Adding ignore words to your personal dictionary

You can add words to the dictionary and Grammarly will then ignore them and not consider them an error. This means you don’t have to reject the suggestion tens or even hundreds of times in a document. Especially useful for academic documents with common and recurring scientific terminology.

CONS

False positives –

Grammarly does make mistakes. Take this example: rock and roll is famous worldwide for it’s energetic music. Grammarly will mark the ‘is’ as being incorrect and suggest ‘are’.

Does not check consistency –

You may mention that someone has blonde hair in one paragraph and brown hair in the next.

Does not check logic
