Hello people. I'm writing a supporting statement for a job application and I would like to know if the following sentence is correct:
LibreOffice Spelling and Grammar Not Working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 26, 2011
I'm new to Linux and Ubuntu (this is my second day), and my friend recommended using LibreOffice over OpenOffice since Oracle is garbage; his words, not mine. (: I used the terminal and entered:
sudo apt-get remove openoffice*.*
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice
sudo apt-get install libreoffice-gnome
I noticed that the Spelling and Grammar check in LibreOffice Writer isn't working. It says spellcheck complete without finding any errors. I assume I need to install a dictionary add-on or something? Any help would be appreciated!
Developing a Spelling & Grammar Checker
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 8, 2002
I was wondering how I could develop a spelling and grammar checker.
Eg. what programing language would be most suitable for this, how does a grammar checker actually work properly (I've noticed sometimes it does), would I need have a HUGE list of words from a dictionary or is there an easier way, etc.
Thanks in advance

Grammar standards these days are very bad. This forum is one place for it.

Over here I have noticed that some newbies to Linux have posted some very improper grammar and expected to receive help for their problems. How many of you are willing to help users who do not capitalize, do not punctuate, and do not post enough info?

Nah, esperanto is so lame it is likely to promote the laziness that some appear to take as an insult. Considering that this is a computer related board, I suggest that we settle on binary. Then we can have an argument about charsets

When reading blogs and forums, the grammatical error I see the most is confusing "then" and "than." Mostly I see people use "more then" when they mean "more than." This only seems to occur when typing/writing, not when people speak.
What grammatical errors do you notice or find amusing? Do you think errors in grammar or typos are more accepted on forums and blogs than in other forms of communication? Is it due to speed or lack of knowledge?

anyone know any good word programs with a good grammar checker? i tried language tool with OOo but it is still buggy lags to find grammar, and unless the sentence is quite simple, it misses alot. tried lightproof too, it has yet to find any error, even in hyphenation which is what it is specifically meant to do. This would be nice to have so I can ween myself entirely off windows.
