The new feature allows users to view extended rules descriptions. These help the user to better understand the corrections and avoid making them in the future.
One of the top problems when using a grammar checking software is that the program only tells you what to fix. You accept the suggestion, but make the same mistake again and again.
We here at Linguix want to help our users to develop a better understanding of a language and its grammar. This is why we’ve released a brand-new extended rules feature in our Web app.
How it works
Now the system offers extended explanations of grammar rules that should be applied to avoid making a particular mistake in the future. Everything is pretty simple. While working on a text using the Linguix Web App you can see the suggested fixes at the right side of the screen:
Now, when you click on some of them you will see a “Show more” link.
Clicking on this link will open a thorough explanation of the particular error with a corresponding language rule used to fix it. Also, there will be examples of correct and incorrect usage of the rule.
Initially, such extended rule explanations are available for several dozen of the most frequent mistakes made by Linguix users. We will continually work on expanding the library of language rules.
Other ways that Linguix is useful for language learning
Making mistakes is not the only source of knowledge. Writing and reading by themselves are as well! Reading complicated texts online can also be useful for expanding your vocabulary. This is why we have a built-in English dictionary.
When you are stuck with an unknown word while reading online and have the Linguix extension installed, just right-click and choose “Look up in Linguix.”
Also, both our Chrome/Firefox extensions and the Web App feature an AI-fueled synonyms-selection engine. It helps you learn better alternatives to words you already know. Just hold the ALT button and double-click the word when typing something online to get a full list of synonyms divided into categories. Synonyms are grouped based on the context of a sentence:
