Rule labels in English

(Piotr) #1

What are the rule labels for checking whether the sentence starts with a capital letter and whether it ends with end of sentence punctuation (in English)? I want to disable them, they give too many false positives.

By the way how do I know if I should use the rule labels in English or in Polish in the Languagetool plugin ?

OK to answer myself, there is this page with rules: but I still can't find the label for the end of sentence punctuation missing in English. I can't believe that this rule exists only in the Polish set (BRAK_KROPKI).

I don't think there's such a rule for English, at least I couldn't find it. One reason might be that LT is also used on headlines and similar texts, which usually don't end in a dot.
