[en] English - possible false positive - 2019-11-20

@Mike_Unwalla

Hello!

While checking my websites, in at least two pages of them I get a false positive in “know”:

The quote in this case in management means: “Know the competition and your software, and you will win.”

It suggests replacing “know” with “now”.

Thanks!

I cannot reproduce this, how are you testing? With the browser add-on?

Yes,

Go to:
http://proofingtoolgui.org/getting_involved.html

Select the relevant paragraph, right-click and in the pop-up menu select:
“Check spelling and grammar”
It will open a tab in Firefox where that error is reported.

This is a statistics rule, but I have added an (incomplete) workaround.
