A batch rule creator can be useful for any language maintainer,
interested in developing filters for language problems. Language
problems such as redundancies, oxymoron, improper expressions, clichés,
etc. have extensive lists on the internet (i.e. Wikipedia) but it is
very time consuming to translate those lists into simple rules, line by
I made a spreadsheet that assists in the creation of lists of rules in a
sort of batch process.
In attachment follows the speadsheet that automates the steps to create a set of rules from a list of expressions.
