Grammarly for everyone

We are running a pilot of the Grammarly Premium product through June 30th, 2018.  Please request a trial version (see below). In the beginning of June we will send out a survey to guage interest in continuing our access to the Premium version.

What is it and how does it work?

Grammarly comes in 2 flavors: Free and Paid.  If you sign-up, you will get access to the Premium version.

Free Grammarly automatically detects grammar, spelling, punctuation, word choice, and style mistakes in your writing.
The Premium version will provide additional feedback and access to a citation/plagiarism checker.
It’s easy to use:
  • Copy and paste any English text into Grammarly’s Editor, or install Grammarly’s free browser extension for Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge. Grammarly will help you write correctly on nearly every site on the web.
  • Grammarly’s algorithms flag potential issues in the text and suggest context-specific corrections for grammar, spelling, wordiness, style, punctuation, and even plagiarism. Grammarly explains the reasoning behind each correction, so you can make an informed decision about whether, and how, to correct an issue.
  • Download Grammarly for Microsoft® Office on Windows.

N.B. Unfortunately, it does not work in google docs. However, you can compose in the grammarly.com window and then copy and past into your google doc.

More information about Grammarly can be found on the Grammarly website.
