To be verbs


Can I use grammarly to point out and detect to be verbs?

To a degree, yes. The Grammarly software identifies passive sentence construction. Since "to be" verbs are often used in passive construction, the software will point out most such verbs.


We are not Grammarly employees here, but I do use the software.

It sounds unlikely but could you clarify the question, please?
