How Does Grammarly Work? – A Detailed Review

by Khurram Shahzad

Why you should not use Grammarly?

Most of the users are not aware of the fact that Grammarly has a product that is suitable for every kind of writing. Grammarly has a multipurpose online editor that can be used for drafting long documents. Furthermore, this product is available as a Microsoft Office add-in that can be used when the users do not want to draft the document on the internet browser. The Grammarly Keyboard application is available for Android as well as iOS-based smartphones. This keyboard is very important for improving writing skills when the user writes from the phone. Grammarly browser extension is another product by Grammarly that keeps a check on your writing when you are adding some content to your favorite website.

How Grammarly works?

All grammarly products are based on a sophisticated artificial intelligence system that operates to analyze the sentences written in the English Language. Grammarly has a team of deep learning engineers and computational linguists. This team is responsible for designing cutting-edge algorithms that learn hidden patterns and rules of good writing by analyzing millions of sentences from research corpora. The AI built-in Grammarly keeps analyzing the sentences when a writer writes some content. The AI system keeps looking for alternatives to improve the sentences by offering a clear sentence structure, suggesting a stronger synonym, or correcting a verb tense.

A complex AI system needs to have a lot of computing power to operate at this level. This computational power is beyond the power of a mobile device or a personal computer. Because of this reason, Grammarly does not run locally on the user’s device and it only runs in the cloud. Therefore, the user needs to have an active internet connection to use Grammarly to check their writing.

The users can also contribute in improving Grammarly’s suggestions. Grammarly’s AI system learns something new and becomes a bit smarter when an individual finds a suggestion unhelpful and hits “ignore” against this suggestion. When the ignore rate against the same suggestion becomes high enough, Grammarly’s team makes adjustments to this suggestion to make the program more useful for future users.

Does Grammarly make you a better writer?

The earliest breakthroughs achieved by Grammarly included the AI-powered writing enhancement related to punctuation, spelling, and grammar correction. Grammarly was named after this significant achievement. However, the experts at Grammarly realized that correcting spelling and grammar was not enough to make the sentences and text clear or compelling. Over the years, Grammarly kept on adding new types of feedback to improve on gnarly sentence structure, poor word choice, vagueness and hedging, wordiness, and even plagiarism. Grammarly keeps on adding new writing checks all the time to keep the services improving all the time.

Grammarly for MS Word  Addin 

The innovative tools developed by Grammarly can be used in different forms – on your word processor, in your web browser, your computer, and on your phone. MS Office Word Processor has a built-in grammar and spelling checker; however, these built-in tools do not provide a breadth of feedback or accuracy as compared to Grammarly tools. Grammarly is much more advanced, and the artificial intelligence-based tools used by Grammarly also have contextual awareness. The basic objective is to differentiate between the email sent to your boss and the text sent to your friend.
