Proofread your writings using WhiteSmoke

Speak­ing Eng­lish lan­guage is dif­fer­ent from writ­ing it with­out any spelling and gram­mat­i­cal mis­takes. You need sheer prac­tice to excel your­self in Eng­lish lan­guage. This is pos­si­ble by con­tin­ual read­ing, writ­ing, speak­ing Eng­lish, I mean, though you do not know it per­fectly, try to prac­tice it reg­u­larly. It is not always pos­si­ble to do ask someone’s help to cor­rect your mails or writ­ings for spelling and gram­mar errors. Hence, you should take help of soft­ware and inter­net who can solve your prob­lem. Using of MS Word and some sites like spellchecker can solve your prob­lem to an extent but they are very lim­ited. Lack of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence is the main draw­back of these tools.

I have found soft­ware which will solve these prob­lems. It com­prises sev­eral writ­ing tools, such as a dic­tio­nary, a the­saurus and ready-made let­ter tem­plates; its core fea­ture is its advanced Eng­lish gram­mar checker. It works on Nat­ural Lan­guage Pro­cess­ing tech­nol­ogy. WhiteSmoke can­not detect all errors. Please remem­ber that this soft­ware is not going to solve all your prob­lems com­pletely but this will han­dle all the major issues in your writ­ings and con­verts your un-interesting and errors into pro­fes­sional writ­ings. This soft­ware is com­pat­i­ble with all the oper­at­ing sys­tems. If you want to use WhiteSmoke, then you have to open word proces­sor appli­ca­tions like Notepad or MS Word, high­light the text you want to proof­read and then click on F2 but­ton. Whitesmoke will con­nect to the online server and gives some sug­ges­tion based on the sce­nario. There are many ver­sions in this soft­ware, check out which suits you and get a copy of it!

Common mistakes that we do when writing spellings

It’s very com­mon that we make the mis­takes when we are writ­ing spellings as we try to write a spelling from the way we speak out. But Eng­lish is a lan­guage in which we can’t write spellings based on the way we speak. There will sev­eral silent let­ters which brings the eas­i­ness and great ele­gant along with beauty while speak­ing. When we are try­ing to write spellings based on the way we speak we may miss the silent let­ters. There are other sev­eral dif­fer­ent mis­takes that we do when we write the spellings. Let’s see some gen­eral spelling mis­takes that we do when we try to con­vert from the way we pro­nounce.
• Drop­ping a let­ter or syl­la­ble when we speak out a word.
• Adding an unnec­es­sary let­ter when we are speak­ing a word.
• Mis­pro­nounc­ing a word and writ­ing the spelling in that wrong way.


Miss­ing let­ters:
Here are some exam­ples that we fre­quently mis­spell because we drop a let­ter while we speak.
Acci­den­tally: Gen­er­ally we pro­nounce this as acci­dently and we drop one let­ter.
Anec­dote: We pro­nounce this as anec­dote. So most often there is a chance to mis­spell this word because we will not pro­nounce that let­ter.
Asked: we will pro­nounce this by elim­i­nat­ing the let­ter ‘e’.
Cat­e­gory: We pro­nounce this as cat­e­gory which mis­leads us and pos­si­ble to mis­spell the word.
There are so many words like this and these are only very few words among them.
Extra let­ters: because of the pro­nun­ci­a­tion be add extra let­ters while we speak. Here are some of the most com­mon words in which we add extra let­ters.
Ath­lete: we pro­nounce this as athalete in which we add extra let­ter ‘a’ and when we try to write we usu­ally mis­spell this word.
Per­se­ver­ance: when we write down this word we often think there might be some silent let­ter and we mis­spell it as perserver­ance.
Hin­drance: we often mis­spell this word as hin­der­ance.
The are some of the exam­ples which we often do when we try to con­vert a word in writ­ten form because we pro­nounce a word dif­fer­ently in the way we feel very easy to us. So dif­fer­ent peo­ple may pro­nounce a word dif­fer­ently and pos­si­ble chances of mak­ing mis­takes when writ­ing spelling of that word.
Trans­posed let­ters: Mis­pro­nun­ci­a­tion also cre­ates mis­spell of the words by scram­bling the let­ters. If we observer some exam­ples we can see mis­spell of the words:
E.g.: Aes­thetic, analy­sis, lin­gerie, psy­chol­ogy, gor­geous, mileage, rhyme.
Incor­rect plu­rals: We often make mis­takes while try­ing to con­vert the words into their plural forms as they are not always formed by just putting the let­ter ‘s’ at the end. There are some plural forms which are derived dif­fer­ently from all oth­ers. The only solu­tion is that we have to remem­ber the plural forms which derive dif­fer­ently from their sin­gu­lar forms. Let’s observe some exam­ples so that we can under­stand more.
We can also elim­i­nate this prob­lem by just iden­ti­fy­ing the plu­rals as reg­u­lar and irreg­u­lar. We will have trou­ble only with the irreg­u­lar plural forms which derives dif­fer­ently from their cor­re­spond­ing sin­gu­lar forms. For reg­u­lar plural forms we just have to add the let­ter ‘s’ or ‘es’ at the end of the sin­gu­lar form.
E.g. bird: birds, hat: hats, pen­cil: pen­cils etc.
In some cases we need to add ‘es’ when the words end with ‘f’ or ‘fe’ or ‘v’.
E.g. half: halves, knife: knives, leaf: leaves etc.
For some com­pound state­ments we need to add dif­fer­ently the let­ter ‘s’.
E.g. mother-in-law: mothers-in-law etc.
There are other words which have very dif­fer­ent form in plural. We can’t say how they are derived but we have to just catch those words.
E.g. child: chil­dren, foot: feet, mouse: mice etc.

One more sit­u­a­tion in which we often con­fuse and mis­spell the words is the words which we pro­nounce the same.
E.g. born-Bourne, board– bored, brake-break, bear– bare etc.
