Grammar Will No Longer Be a Writing Skill

Diagrammed sentenceDiagramming sentences may go the way of the chalkboard and it might very well be unnecessary to take grammar classes at school in the not too distant future. That thought might be a bit of hyperbole; but after reading about a new product from Microsoft called Ideas, it’s not so big a stretch. At Microsoft’s Build developer conference, a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) product called Ideas was announced. It will suggest ways to rewrite clunky sentences, provide better synonyms “and alternate phrases to make writing more concise”, according to a story on BBC News. In essences, it could be considered a grammar tool. Ideas will initially only be available on the cloud for Word Online users starting in the fall.
