Grammar and Punctuation Checker
 
Does anyone have a recommendation for a free site that will check the grammar and punctuation usage within your articles? Is there a such thing as a free plagiarism checker as well? I have tried to search through the threads to see if this has been discussed before, but I am not having any luck. Thank you in advance.

Here's a link to the free plagiarism checker I use:

Free Plagiarism Checker

I run all my DS articles through it, and I haven't been flagged for plagiarism yet (knock on wood). I don't know how it compares to Copyscape, because this is the only checker I've ever used.

Im not seeing the free version of OpenOffice! Do you have a link to the free version?

All versions of OpenOffice are free. It's an open-source program. Here's the download link, though:

OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite

Just click the second option, "I want to download OpenOffice.org."

I use it exclusively for word processing and I like it much better than Microsoft Word. Hope that helps!

Willow, thanks for the link. I will go look at that myself. I like Word, but their prices are high and they smorgastyle their wares to extract the max profit. When I first got a computer in about 94-95, I had all the programs already on it. I really miss that. Possibly when more people begin using alternatives, their prices will come down.

Plagiarism Checker

I use this and the other plagiarism checker.


For grammar I use word but it doesn't catch my comma errors. I don't know why I can't get my commas right. I always put them wherever I would pause when speaking, but they aren't always correct.

I found this article but haven't clicked the links yet to see if they want money to give you detailed results
