This does not appear to be the case. On Grammarly's introductory page there is a space to enter text, which is then analised by Grammarly for grammar, spelling, punctuation and various other features. I wrote the following, which is fairly nonsensical, but which deliberately includes several words and uses of punctuation which I am aware differ from American usage. "I have practised saying that the colour of my neighbour's centre is grey, blue and red. The theatre is made from aluminium but I wish I were able to build another that noone could criticise. "I believe", said the tailor, "that all these words are spelt correctly. That is the way I learnt to spell them at school". Although I double checked the spelling of every word and all the punctuation, in order to sensure that they are correct in British English, Grammarly tried to tell me that it contained several errors in spelling and punctuation. They do not tell you what these "alleged" errors are.
