Hello everyone, this is the first time I’m using Languagetool as well as this forum and I’ve got some little questions \o
I’m not a native English speaker but I’d like to use this tool mainly to learn more about my grammar mistakes. Thing is, I have noticed the tool isn’t detecting basic grammar errors, like the correct usage of prepositions… So I’d like to know what to expect from it and what not.
@dnaber has explained me at github there is this site where I can check all the rules so my questions would be:
- Is that site showing the rules of the latest github version or the ones living in the stable website version? For instance, I’ve downloaded languagetool v4.1 from the website but then I’ve just built myself the latest version from github, 4.2-snapshot and I’ve noticed this last one has few more rules, so…
- What limitations should I expect from the software… for instance, is there any constraint when it comes to grammar error detection? I’ve noticed the software isn’t detecting bad usage of prepositions (not in 4.1), is that because missing rules? rules not supporting that? something else?
Anyway, got more questions but I don’t want to make a very long thread here… just saying to all devs/contributors thank you very much you guys have created an open source tool like this one, very promising and exciting ;D
