Hello @Mike_Unwalla

I was shocked when I wrote this on LO and LanguageTool didn’t flag it:
“You must trust you’re instincts”

Hello @marcoagpinto,

I get the expected results in LT standalone if I add a full stop.

The rule (YOUR_NN) has a token after the token for the noun. Your example sentence (without quote marks) does not have a token (punctuation, new line character, word) after ‘instincts’, so the rule does not trigger.

I think I can see why it works like that,
"“You must trust you’re instinct…”
might be an unfinished
“You must trust you’re instinctively superior.”
