looking at http://community.languagetool.org/corpusMatch/list?lang=en I see
a lot of warnings where I cannot decide whether they are really useful. If
you are a native English speaker, please help us by saying whether you
think these rules should really be activated by default:
From "Redundant phrases" category:
"period of time". LT says "Use simply 'period'"
"a large number of". LT says "Specify a number, remove phrase, or simply use 'many' or 'numerous'"
"many different". LT says "Use simply 'many'"
"all of the". LT says "Use 'all the'"
"the winter season". LT says "Use simply 'winter'"
LT says "You used three nouns after one another, and this might decrease
readability. You might consider rewording the sentence." for phrases like
television guidance system
payload delivery system
computer science education
speech synthesis library
X-ray fiber diffraction
sodium nitrite solution
precision mechanics industry
CD add-on device
What do you think, are these rule useful? Should they be enabled by default or are they just annoying?
