Error: the IT sector


I’ve worked in the IT sector for over twenty years.

This sentence is correct. LanguageTool says it’s a possible typo ("Did you mean “the” or “IT”).

Besides being obviously correct, Oxford Business English Plus has two samples sentences that use this construction (that LanguageTool also considers possible typos):

The telecoms sector fell by 1% and the IT sector fell by 2.5%.
The IT sector has been hit by the bursting of the dot-com bubble.


Thanks. I added this problem to my list of problems to fix.
