check the grammar


This is the first sentence in Oliver Twist. it is super long, i wanna check the grammar

See example:

Among other public buildings in a certain town, which for many reasons it will be prudent to refrain from mentioning, and to which I will assign no fictitious name, there is one anciently common to most towns, great or small: to wit, a workhouse; and in this workhouse was born; on a day and date which I need not trouble myself to repeat, in as much as it can be of no possible consequence to the reader, in this stage of the business at all events; the item of mortality whose name is prefixed to the head of this chapter.

You may check the grammar if you wish. Grammarly has a product for that. Of course, it will check it against the rules and general style of modern English. Language, grammar, style, spelling, and even meaning, change over the years, decades, and centuries. Just today I had a conversation about the word swag. It is used to describe items usually considered special - only some people get to have the swag. I remember when companies first started giving out SWAG. It was an acronym for Stuff We All Get. Quite the opposite of today's meaning.
