Checking Your Grammar
Checking Your Grammar
Sometimes Word may underline one or more words with a green squiggly line
to highlight possible grammar errors. To correct any grammar errors, follow
these steps:
1. Right-click any text underlined with a green squiggly line.
A pop-up menu appears.
2. Choose one of the following:
What you want: Click the correct grammar that appears in bold in
the pop-up menu.
Ignore Once: This tells Word to ignore the sentence.
About This Sentence: This displays a help window that provides
examples of correct grammar, as shown in Figure 5-17.
Figure 5-17:
Choosing
the About
This
Sentence
option
displays

examples.
Rather than right-click on each possible grammatical error, you may find
it easier to click the Proofing icon (which looks like an open book) in the
bottom-left corner of the screen.
Although Word’s spell and grammar checker can catch most errors, it
probably won’t catch all of them and it may even highlight words and sentences
that are actually correct. Use Word’s spell and grammar checker as a tool,
but don’t rely on it to do all your proofing for you.
