When using the Linguix writing tool, which is powered by machine learning and AI to fully maximize the potential of your written content, it is recommended that you set goals.

Here’s why you should, and how it can be done:

Linguix readability scores

Linguix offers a readability score to your written text that is within the content editor. You may have seen readability scores before on the likes of WordPress, but what exactly is Linguix’s readability score? How it is ascertained, and what does it mean for your writing?

It’s a simple premise. The readability score is a numerical score, measured from 0 to 100, and it is based on formulas known universally as the Flesch reading ease test. The Flesch test is a universally accepted scale for ascertaining the reading ease of a text, with a score of 100 representing a simple sentence with no words with more than two syllables.

Generally speaking, a Flesh readability score of between 60 and 70 is acceptable for web content, but then it depends on exactly what it is that you are writing.

And so, the Linguix readability score enables you to understand the complexity of your test, allowing you to tailor it for your audience as is required. This is a fundamental part of producing effective content, just as important as correct grammar and spelling, which Linguix’s writing assistant also proofs, offering guidance and suggestions as needed.

Selecting a writing goal on Linguix

Perhaps the most essential consideration when setting out on your text is the knowledge of who your audience is. In marketing, this is the golden rule: know your audience. And when it comes to producing an effective written context, the pretext is the same.

Selecting your goal on Linguix is fundamentally related to knowing your audience. First, you must select the knowledge base of your audience (so, for example, are they experts on the content, or not?). Once you have selected between the simple options, it next comes down to what is known in the language business as register, but what is identified by Linguix conveniently as formality. Here there are three simple options: informal, neutral and formal.

Your final option is your purpose. So, is this text for business, for leisure, for academic purposes, or for something else. Select accordingly.

Once you have chosen these options as desired, you have set your goals on Linguix. The text that you then enter is measured against these goals, and recommendations are made based on the results. Quite simply, in this way, you can ensure that the text you have produced is suitable for the audience and purpose for which it is intended. That’s how smart the Linguix writing tool is.

Linguix emotions

There’s one final, extremely useful step, and that all boils down to tone. What emotion do you wish to exude through your text? Is it supposed to be entertaining, funny, serious, friendly, or neutral? Again, depending on what you select, Linguix’s machine learning and AI-driven tool alert you to any inconsistencies that occur with your chosen emotion.

And that, as they say, is that. Not only will you be able to produce content that is free form grammatical and lexical errors, spelling mistakes and punctuation mishaps, but content that is actually highly suitable to the set requirements. That’s a smart tool.

Take the quality and suitability of your writing to a higher level with Linguix.
