Don’t Let Grammatical Errors and Misspellings Ruin Your Academic Pursuit
You have worked hard to get to where you are in your academic pursuit. Don’t let errors in English undo what took you years to achieve.
According to Professors’ Guide LLC, “College professors don’t always consciously take off for spelling and grammatical errors, but it’s hard to give an A to a paper that shows great carelessness in preparation.”
You Are Not Your Best Proofreader
It has been psychologically proven that you are not the best person to proofread your work because of the way our brains are wired.
When you proofread your work, you hear the right words in your head as you will say them when talking with others and so, you unknowingly bypass errors in your writings.
That is why your best proofreader is someone else.
No, Proofreading Software is Not the Answer
Proofreading software cannot catch errors humans will naturally catch.
Experts have pointed to this sentence that even the most advanced proofreading software could not catch the error:
“Spell check will not find words witch are miss used butt spelt right!”
Some proofreading softwares will even flag correct words, leaving you confused and unsure.
There is a story about an attorney whose spellcheck software unknowingly replaced the words “sua sponte” (a Latin phrase for “on its motion”) with the words “sea sponge” throughout his brief.
As a result, some of his sentences read:
“An appropriate instruction limiting the judge’s criminal liability in such a prosecution must be given sea sponge explaining that certain acts or omissions by themselves are not sufficient to support a conviction.”
“It is well settled that a trial court must instruct sea sponge on any defense, including a mistake of fact defense.”
Needless to say, he was embarrassed in court.
Proofreading software can only minimize errors but can’t completely eliminate them or insert words the way humans can do. So, don’t trust your future to a machine.

Academic Documents We Proofread
The Difference Between Editing and Proofreading
Editing has to do with improving the overall quality of a writing by adding and subtracting words and ideas and making suggestions to this effect. It includes formatting to enhance readability and ensuring certain academic conventions are met, among other things.
Proofreading, on the other hand, deals with the correction of errors in spelling, punctuation, word order and grammar.
