Message 3: Grammar Checking

From: Henry Kucera <>
Subject: Grammar Checking

 Microsoft Word 5.0 for the Mac and Word 2.0 for Windows now contains a new
spelling corrector and, perhaps of more interest to linguists, a grammar
 I am sorry to say that tha Mac Word 5.0 has some bugs in it (not all present
in the Windows version), e.g. it does not correct the very common typo of
keying in "form" instead of "from" (and vice versa). This works quite well in
the Windows version. Clearly, this is a grammar problem involving a parse, not
something that a word-based spelling checker can catch. There are other bugs as
well but this is understandable since this a first implementation.

 If you have any comments on spelling and/or grammar in Microsoft Word, please
 let me know (HenryBrownvm.Bitnet or Henry_KuceraBrown.Edu) and I will do my
best to have them corrected in an upgrade (no guarantees). Many thanks,
 Henry Kucera.
