For Grammarly Premium Uses

Last Update: January 31, 2021

This is mainly for those who use Grammarly, the premium version.





As you know, there is a setup before you start using Grammarly, as shown above.

I would like to know your preferred setting; do you use it for most of your posts.

This for each section as shown above.

For those unaware of what each part consists of in each section, here it is, which will give those a greater understanding of a part of what Grammarly offers.

Audience


General: which is easy for anyone to read with minimal effort

Knowledgeable: as shown above, this is by default

Expert: May require rereading to understand (this might be more for detailed technical articles)


Formality


Informal: Allows slang and other more causal usages

Neutral: As shown above, this is by default

Formal: Restricts slang and colloquialisms

Domain :


Academic: Strictly applies all rules and formal writing conventions

Business: Applies almost all rules but allows for some formal conventions

General: As shown above, this is by default.

Email: Applies almost all rules, plus email writing conventions

Casual: Appies most rules but allows stylistic flexibility

Creativity: Allows some intentional bending of rules and conventions

Tone


This section doesn't give reasons as the other sections, but you can select all or what you wish to use here.

The other ones above are just one choice.

Update:

Sorry Guys just realized that I left one more Goal which I forgot to scroll down it is called intent and is shown below the first image at the top.

Like Tone, this can be selected either as one or all or a mixture

I know this can depend on the particular article but in general, which you use and why.

The image above is the default image when setting your goals before you start your article.

Your thoughts and ideas are certainly appreciated.

Thanks

Andre

I have premium and has until recently just left everything on default. But I have discovered that using the settings actively in respect the type of blog post you want to write, helps a lot. So, I change the settings around quite a bit at the moment.

By changing the settings, the proposed re-writing of phrases and paragraphs has been a gold mine for me as English is not my native tongue.

Good morning Andre,

Thank you for your blog post, it's appreciated.

It's an interesting blog post as I tried premium Grammarly for one year, about a year ago. I found that the premium version almost seemed too time-consuming with all the features. However, maybe I was not using it correctly or to its full potential.

At the moment I'm just using the free version of Grammarly, which is almost more helpful than the paid version. Even the free version does not get everything right though.

It would be great to hear how other people find the premium version of Grammarly. Maybe I should have spent more time reading the instructions to attain the most from the software.

Have a great day Andre.

The Free version is great Roy and if you are happy with that then stick to it.

I found when I had the free version it would tell me more about other errors or fixes which would require to go Premium
I did work hard to fix them while still free but it took a very long time to get the same result,

Once I went premium it was so much quicker and save a lot of time and frustration as well

I am happy with Premium but as I said if you are fine with the free version then stick to it

Have a great week ahead and thank you for your comment and visit appreciated.

Thank you for your reply, Andre.

It's interesting what people think about the premium version of Grammarly. I have to say that I have heard more good things than bad things about the premium version. Maybe I wasn't using the premium version to its full potential or maybe I didn't read the instructions!

I will take a look at the rest of this thread as it's an interesting subject. I was fortunate that I was able to try Grammarly premium at a considerably reduced rate.

Have a great day.

Most Welcome Roy

If I didn't get that reduced offer at the time I would have just continued with the Free version. In Fact, I didn't take it up straight away as I forget then I got another offer which was even better than the first one so I took that.

Enjoy your day

Thank you, Andre.

That's interesting Andre, I can't remember what I paid now, I'm guessing it was probably 60 to 70% cheaper than the full price. I cancelled when the year was up.

If there was another special offer, I would consider taking it up, especially after reading your post. I'm not sure if I was reaping the full benefits of Grammarly premium.

Have a great day,

Roy

That would be good Andre, I would seriously consider an offer.

I can't remember where you are in the world Andre, I was thinking you were in Europe, but obviously not! I'm in the UK and it's just approaching 1 PM here.

Sleep well and I will catch you soon.

Okay, Andre, that sounds like a good place to be, especially in a UK January! I've always liked the idea of visiting New Zealand or Australia in the British wintertime! I don't know what I was thinking you were in Europe somewhere!

However, my wife does come from Greece so we do have the benefits of the Greek weather when we get time to visit. It's not hot in Greece, but it's considerably warmer than the UK!

I use Grammarly Premium everyday. Its mostly for academic and business, its formal writing. I just click on what is necessary for the paper’s purpose.

The best one that I like for my blogging is Hemingway Editor. There are other softwares for writers that our Member DianeK59 mentioned in her blogs.

I use Grammarly for a lot of editing work for other people’s academic papers.

I do think Grammarly is a great tool. I use the free version. I do appreciate the help it offers.

I tend to be a bit wordy and appreciate the help offered with the version I use.
Interesting information that you presented, and a different slant on the program. Sami

Thank you Sami the free version is still quite good just the premium version helps you more with the various area like grammar, spelling, sentence structure etc.

Wishing you well

I have been using Grammarly for a few years now, but the free version. It is good at this time for what I am doing.

I dig your input though for a better understanding of the settings inside of Grammarly. Mine is all set at default, works fine for me.

Wonderful to hear Scott I agree the free version is great to use as well. The premium version gives you a bit more options to fix errors in greater detail.
You can do the same in free but it can take a long time to fix those unhidden errors free shows you unless you go premium.

Have a great week ahead
