Punctuation Errors


Dear Grammarly,


Why is there a glitch in the system? Good punctuation--use of the dash to indicate interruption in speech, use of the apostrophe in possessives--gets highlighted for correction. This confuses the writer. If this kind of correction persist, a brief explanation(reason for error) should be given along with the suggested replacement.  This malfunction needs to be addressed, for it is extremely annoying. My husband and I use Grammarly to improve our writing skills--not handicap them.

We are deperate for a fix!

Grammarly Support (or the development team) does not read this forum.  You need to communicate this sort of issue directly with Grammarly Support. There is a link at the bottom of the page.


So that you know, I have complained about the misreading of em-dashes on several ocassions.  Nothing has happened. I suspect -- from an interview with one of the founders I read -- they have moved beyond development to the monetizing phase.
