[en] Possible new rule - 2019-07-19

Hello @Mike_Unwalla

I was wondering if this rule could be added:
“Peter has sent me an e-mail”
replacing “sent me an e-mail” with “e-mailed me”
and variants.

I had this idea after noticing in the Word add-in that there was a rule “Consider a shorter alternative”.

Thanks!

Hello @marcoagpinto,

Technically, I am sure that such a rule is possible. But, for the next few weeks, I will do very little LT work.

Done (https://github.com/languagetool-org/languagetool/commit/0c761a7a86c8d8b65d8644992eaf58fa495fdf49).

Thank you, Mike!

Counter example: “Pierre send me an E-mail, a rather scathing E-mail.”

@SkyCharger001, good point. Will fix (by changing the message) tomorrow.

@SkyCharger001, fixed (https://github.com/languagetool-org/languagetool/commit/d2a655794ca3e824337f26400757c406d858f82b).
