Online Grammar Check
Please see the sentence below, i got a score 100 of 100, however when i was reviewing it,found a mistake, "by mix-next week.", can it be "mix-next week, it should be "mid-next week". The answer is clear, however, i would like to know why the online grammar can't recognize the issue, and how come i score 100 of 100, please let me know if i am missing any thing. Can we really depend on "Online Grammar Check" web tool.
It was nice to hear from you, and hoping everything is going good for you. I will definitely send you the "M2 Logo" by mix-next week.
I would like to appreciate for providing us the opportunity to work for CTAI.
Remember, it's only software. Even if the online spell checker checked hyphenated words, it would still have a hard time telling the difference between mid and mix -- both are correctly spelled and appear in the dictionary.
To decide whether the usage is right or not, the software would have to "understand" more about the context. I have read about several academic efforts (plus ones at Google and Microsoft) where the grammar/spell checker uses a statistical analysis of the surrounding words (think of that as the context) to determine whether something is "likely" to be an error. Google's version looks to the Web corpus for its statistical basis -- this works fairly well for Google Translate, but not so well for grammar. Other efforts use other strategies.
Totally accurate machine grammar/spell checkers remain in the future, if ever.
In any case, mid-next week is an awkward, and likely incorrect, use of a hyphentated compound adjective. Mid can either stand alone as an adjective or be applied as prefix (with a hyphen) to the noun it modifies. Next here is another adjective, so mid cannot be applied to it with a hyphen. Instead, mid and next act on week as coordinate adjectives,both words equally modifying the noun. Compound adjectives, which receive a hyphen, are formed from many parts of speech -- noun + noun, adjective + noun, noun + gerund, adjective + participle, etc. -- but never from two coordinate adjectives. The correct phrase is mid next week (informal) or the middle of next week (formal).
A present, only a human editor would pick up this problem.

The K-501 is the air compressor to provided air to the Dryer, and the K-502 is the air blower to take out the moist air from Dryer. In normal operation condition, K-501 and K-502 are running together to balance the amount of air in Dryer. The PT-5704 monitored pressure in Dryer; and the PSL-5750 protect Dryer to against negative pressure at –15 mbar. If the pressure in Dryer reduced to – 15 mbar or below the K-502 will be stop. The K-502 stopped will cause stop the K-501. On the contrary, the K-501 stopped will cause stop the K-502 due pressure in Dryer reduced below – 15 mbar.

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to compare precompetition anxiety between male and female student athletes’ of Jimma University who participated in Athletics competition, at 6th all Ethiopian governmental Universities sport festival. To attain this , a cross sectional study design was employed. For Statistical population consisted of 42 Jimma University athletes (n=26 male , n=16 female) a modified version of Pre-competitive state Anxiety Inventory-2 questioner (CSAI-2) that Comprises of 27-items and measure’s 3Components: Cognitive anxiety, Somatic anxiety and Self-confidence (Martens, Burton, Vealey, Bump, & Smith, 1990),were administered 30 minutes before to the competition schedule and finally 35 Completed questioners were collected ( 21from male ,14 from female ones).Yet,7 questioners were found to be incomplete. Relevant Data obtained were analyzed using quantitative methods, that are mean, standard deviation, t-test and Pearson product moment correlation so as to see whether any significant difference exist between male and female athletes with respect to precompetition anxiety sub variables and to determine the existing relationship between gender towards the variable precompetition anxiety at 0.05level of Significant .
METHOD OF THE STUDY
Study Population, participants, site and data collection
Statistical population of the present research Consisted of all male and female student athletes of Jimma University (n= 42) who participated in athletics competition at 6th all Ethiopian governmental universities sport festival that was hosted by Arbaminch University from June23 to 27/2013. After necessary arrangements with coaches and supervisors of Jimma university athletics team, the athletes were asked to answer the questionnaires according to their feelings before the competition. The questionnaires were, therefore, distributed for the whole statistical population 30 minutes before the competition started and finally 21completed questionnaires were collected from male athletes (Mage 19.75, SD _ 2.68) and 14 from female ones(Mage 19.75, SD _ 2.68). Yet, 4 participants did not indicate their gender on the returned questionnaires and 3 questionnaires were found to be incomplete.
Instrument of Data Collection
In this study, the modified Competitive State Anxiety Inventory-2 questioner (CSAI-2; Martens et. al., 1990),that is widely used by different researchers to reliably measure the components of anxiety in the athletic context ;was used to measure pre-competition state Anxiety level of Jimma University male and female student- athletes’. The CSAI-2 is made up of 27 items, in each statement an intensity rating Scale ranging (1: Not at all to 4: very often) and each item measure’s one of the 3 multidimensional constructs: cognitive anxiety, somatic anxiety and self-confidence. Besides, the multidimensional constructs are prearranged in the questioner as cognitive anxiety = Q.1,4,7,10,13,16,19,22,25, somatic anxiety= Q. 2,5,8,11,14,17,20,23,26, and self-confidence = Q.3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27 (Martens et. al., 1990). The items in the present questioner were, therefore, arranged into four main categories including the background information of the respondents (see appendix-1).
Method of data Analysis
Quantitative methods were used to analyze the collected data. Descriptive statistics explicitly mean and standard deviation were computed. Besides, Independent t-test and Product Moment Correlation were computed so as to examine whether any significant difference exist between male and female student-athletes with respect to precompetition anxiety sub variables and to determine the existing relationship between gender towards the variable pre -competition anxiety at 0.05level of Significant, respectively.
Method of data Analysis
SPSS 16 software was used to analyze the collected data. Data analysis was done by two parts of descriptive and inferential statistics section. In descriptive section mean and standard deviation were computed. However, In inferential statistics section such as independent t-test and the Product Moment Correlation were employed in order to examine whether any significant difference exist between male and female student athletes with respect to precompetition anxiety sub variables and to determine the existing relationship between gender towards the variable precompetition anxiety at 0.05level of Significant, respectively.
The internal consistency for cognitive anxiety, somatic anxiety, and self-confidence has been found to be .81, .82, and .88, respectively (Martens et. al., 1990), whereas in the present study, the validity of the questioner was assessed by senior researcher psychologist and the reliability by alpha Cronbach (=0.84). In addition, Esfahani and Soflu (2010) reported the reliability of this questioner as =0.89.
Validity of the research questions was verified by a panel of experts as well as reliability of the research tool was tested and the Cronbach’s Alpha was calculated ( ). Reliability of the research tool was tested

In the novel “ To Kill a Mockingbird, “ by Harper Lee, this quotation is found on page 129. “ Forgot to tell you the other day that besides playing the Jew’s Harp. Atticus Finch was the deadest shot in Maycomb County in his time. “ This quotation is a conversation between Miss. Maudie telling Jem and Scout that Atticus is the best shot in Maycomb because Scout was always like Atticus is really old so he doesn’t do anything and he also isn’t good at anything. Everyone in Scout’s class is always talking about the things that they do with their dad, but since Atticus is old she feels like he’s too old to participate in anything. Atticus Finch has been a very humble person throughout the novel, he doesn’t like to brag about his talents or skills in front of anyone.
In this quotation, something that is exhibited about the character is that it shows Atticus is a very humble person. This is shown in the novel when Atticus doesn’t tell anyone about him being the best shot in the Maycomb town because he doesn’t want to brag about it so he just keeps it to himself. One of the conflicts that have been shown in this quotation are that Jem and Scout both feel left out from the other kids from their school because everyone father plays with them, but Atticus doesn’t. They are having a very hard time facing the fact the Atticus is too old. Though when they see Tim Johnson the mad dog and how Atticus shot him, they find out that their father is actually the best shot in the Maycomb County and that he doesn’t use his abilities whenever he wants to, unless he has to.
In this quotation, there was a significant mood that was present, which was shown when Calpurnia told Atticus there was a mad dog outside, and when Atticus went outside he had shot the mad dog. Miss. Maudie then said to Scout, “ Well now Miss Jean Louise, still think your father can’t do anything? Still ashamed of him. “ “ Atticus Finch was the deadest shot in Maycomb County in his time. “ After she was finished Jem said “ Dead Shot, “ while echoing. She said “ Guess you’ll change your tune now. “ Miss. Maudie said didn’t you know that his nickname was Ol’ One-Shot when he was a boy.
The theme that was revealed in this quotation was you could learn unexpected things from unpredicted people. When Miss. Maudie told Jem and Scout about how Atticus has the best shot in the Maycomb County. When she told them about Atticus Jem was so surprised because Scout and himself always thought that their father was too old to do anything, but after seeing and hearing from one of their neighbors they were really happy to find out that their father has a talent as well. Jem had asked Miss. Maudie if Atticus is the best shot in Maycomb, why he doesn’t go hunting, she said, “ I think maybe he put his gun down when he realized that god had given him an unfair advantage over most living things. I guess he decided he wouldn’t shoot til he had to, and he had to today.
In conclusion, this quotation has revealed that Atticus is a very humble person in the Maycomb County, it has shown that significant mood was present and it has also shown one of the themes which were that you could learn unexpected things from unpredicted people. Atticus Finch has been known to be a very humble person in this novel since he doesn’t tell anyone that he is the best shot in the Maycomb town because he doesn’t want to brag about it. he doesn’t even tell Jem or Scout about his talent because he doesn’t want them bragging about it. To Atticus, it doesn’t matter what people think about him.
