How does a spell checker work?

A spell checker does three things
  1. Find individual words in the document being checked.
  2. Check each word against a list of already correct words.
  3. If no match can be found then the spell checker looks for suggestions that are similar in sound and structure to the word that wasn't found.

How does a grammar checker work?

A grammar checker looks for grammatical errors by reading your text. Grammar checkers look for subject-verb agreement, missing punctuation, punctuation misuse, and run on sentences. It provides suggestions based on the types of grammar errors detected. It is most often used for research papers, academic papers, and college entrance essays. However, grammar checking is sometimes too strict for every day writing and you may not want to use one for text messages, blog comments, primary and elementary school homework and other writing which is under less scrutiny.

How does a word and character counter work?

Our character counter counts the number of characters typed into the textarea. All characters including whitespace, punctuation and numbers are counted. Our word counter counts the number of words, or grouping of letters or numbers, separated by whitespace. You can use this word and character counter to check the number of words for reports, papers, essays, or to compose the perfect 140 character Tweet or come up with the right 100 characters for your App Store listing.

Naughty Words

The dictionaries used by this site have been hand curated for use in educational, professional and many informal settings. For example, our dictionary has eliminated most improper and "naughty" words using our naughty word filter. This prevents inappropriate words from appearing as a suggestion if you have a close misspelling or if a name is similar to a naughty word. Note: the checker will ignore properly spelled naughty words but won't suggest them.

American and British Spelling Variations

This site includes dictionaries for both American English and British English spelling variations. We also provide variations for Canadian and Australian spelling and vocabulary. Common differences between American and British spelling deals with word suffixes. Words ending with "re" in British English usually end with "er" in American English. Words ending with "nce" in British English usually end with "nse" in American English. British English also borrows more words from other European languages and adopts their spelling. Other common suffix differences:

  • British suffix "re" - American suffix "er"
  • British suffix "nce" - American suffix "nse"
  • British suffix "ise" - American suffix "ize"
  • British suffix "our" - American suffix "or"
Another common spelling difference between American and British English is the "double L". In British English words such as "travelling", "quarrelling", etc. in American English tend to remove the "double L".
