Your writing should stand out because of its content, not because of its errors. Our punctuation checker is the all-round package to make your writing the star of the show.
All of them.
Commas are possibly the most used and misused punctuation marks in English. It doesn’t help that there are a number of rules around when to use them (and when not to). Don’t leave it up to interpretation. Use a punctuation checker so your reader interprets your text the way you want.
Did you know that if you can replace your punctuation mark with a conjunction, the punctuation mark should probably be semicolon? It’s good to remember the rules but don’t just rely on memory. ProWritingAid’s Punctuation Corrector will proofread your writing and suggest where to use a colon or two.
Imagine saying “its” when you really meant “it’s.” It’s a common mistake but it makes you look sloppy and unprofessional. A good punctuation checker will analyze your work and show you if you’ve gone wrong. A great one like ours will show you how to correct it, both now and in the future.
You probably know the basic rules: capitalize the first word of a sentence and the first letter of proper nouns. However, there are other capitalization rules that you might not know. That’s okay! ProWritingAid will remember all the rules for you and will catch any issues with capitalization.
Can you tell the difference between a dash, en-dash, and em-dash? Our punctuation checker can, and it will link to articles so you’ll be able to tell the difference too. We cover the bases for all the punctuation marks: periods, quotations, brackets, ellipses… (you get the picture).

Only reason I managed to get an A in all my freshmen composition classes.
