I would like to propose in my app a global style checking helpers :
It would be separated from classical spellchecking and we could select the styles categories/rules to check.
I am inspired by https://prowritingaid.com than help writers to improve their writing.
I would like to propose similar features in my French writing platform https://writecontrol.fr
Interesting features could be :
Glue word detection => https://prowritingaid.com/art/347/How-to-use…-The-Sticky-Sentence-Report.aspx
Unnecessarily complicated writing => https://prowritingaid.com/art/360/How-to-use…-The-Diction-Report.aspx
Too personal pronoum => https://prowritingaid.com/art/357/How-to-use...The-Pronoun-Check.aspx
dialog detection => https://prowritingaid.com/art/726/how-to-use-the-dialogue-check.aspx
passive voice detection
weak verbs detection
Too long sentences
detect transition per sentences https://prowritingaid.com/en/Analysis/WebEditor/Go?redirectToDocs=true
detect impersonnel sentences
detect demonstrative pronouns
What’s your point of view about it ?
Is Language Tool is adapted to these use cases ?
Do you see value in style checking ?
I will define in a few weeks my development planning for 2020 and 2021 (full time) and I can engage a lot of time to build these types of optional features.
I’m an experienced Java programmer but a newbie in NLP. So, will need to be guided sometimes.
The first thing I would like to propose is to detect the passive voice.
I see in grammar.xml files than it is already possible in English and Portuguese.
I would like to add an optional passive voice detection rule in French.
Is possible and if yes, could you guide me ?
I would be very happy to contribute more to this cool project.
