About this Guide

Grammarly identifies spelling, grammar, and plagiarism issues in your writing. Unlike spelling and grammar check in Microsoft Word, which only provides corrections, Grammarly includes an explanation of the writing error so that you know what to look for when you proofread your work. Grammarly also makes the distinction in the type of paper you’ve been asked to write, which is important because tone and content requirements vary for different assignments.
