Solidus Editorial Solutions Proper English
Most folks don’t realize what a constant battle it is to defend the English language. Typos are everywhere. New words and acronyms that make your skin crawl – I’m looking at you, YOLO – try and worm their way into the common vernacular. And texting has all but eliminated the use of capitalization and punctuation, and reduced the grandeur and majesty of the language to embarrassing stubs like “l8r” and “bcoz.”

Which begs the questions: Is it time for us to lay down our arms? And are we fighting a hopeless battle?

I certainly hope not, but perhaps the writing – poorly spelled or otherwise – is indeed on the wall. Those of you who are too young to remember can scarcely imagine the outrage when CDs first began appearing on music store shelves, threatening to replace beloved records and cassette tapes. Now even the CDs have been supplanted. Things outlive their usefulness. The world moves on. Maybe it’s ready to move on without editors.

One realm that is still a bastion of editorial bliss is advertising. Ad agencies are so afraid of looking stupid – or worse, making their clients look stupid – by printing or posting something with a typo that they keep in-house teams of language lovers handy to give everything a once-over. But if those of us who care about, respect, and love the English language are a dying breed, how long before corporate America stops worrying about errors in spelling or grammar? If they’re advertising to people who don’t see typos, then what does it matter if they’re there or not?

People who do what we do know what we mean when we say that “the radar is always on” – in other words, we can never not see an error, no matter where we are. So we will always rail against typos and errors no matter where we see them. But if we’re all eventually put out to pasture, it won’t matter what we say – because no one will care.

nice article about English writing. Many people when write they don't know the use of punctuation and grammar rules for writing. When i read this blog i gain much knowledge about it, thanks for sharing that information with us.

Hey dude! I definitely 100% agree with you. It is a actual pity how the British terminology is being definitely mutilated beyond any identification. The sad factor is I'm increasing up with the creation of children doing this, as I'm around their age and I have to not just put up with them on the internet, but in everyday lifestyle.

English from England is the proper English, seeing as it's where it all originated. I think this is the first English which were described.

Actually, the idea of proper English is an artificial construct that was invented many years ago, which is a very short time, linguistically speaking. So that's why it is not the matter of proper English.

In my opinion, all of the above are great free punctuation checkers. The one you select will heavily depend on its user interface and other personal touches.

That being said, it is tough to measure just how accurate these are when compared to one another. If you are unsure about any of them, I would alternatively suggest a premium Grammarly account, which appears to have a great reputation among publishers.

And you can use something like comma checker.

No i don't think so, because if you want to learn proper English then you should hire a teacher or join proper English learning academy. English one of the most important part of our daily life and we should learn it.

Not that we are grammer Nazis, but it shows some level of disrespect when people do not proofread their work, although I do understand that some people are not native speakers. I feel like hacking their twitter accounts to correct their work.

First of all, select the topics for which you desire to write a research paper and then try to read their related sample work. Students can get sample research papers written on many websites such as Research paper city or similar.
