Homonym And Homophone Checker

Didn’t know if there was any possibility for a Homonym checker.

Evidently I need one :unamused: , or so my husband tells me. I’m a terrible speller. I didn’t know if there would be any chance this would be an option to include or add on. Even if it was some sort of thing you had to actually run, or if it just toggled on as a highlight when selected. It would be far more than most processing software does currently. I’d personally prefer to be able to exclude words I use 3,000 times in my manuscript like I or to, but I know that one person doing the complex coding may or may not allow for such. Just thought I’d throw it out there. I’d even pay extra for an add on, as it’s homonyms are a problem for me.

By the way, this is the best software. I’ve turned as many of my writer friends onto it as possible. One of my biggest hurdles for writing has been keeping everything organized and Scrivener took that excuse away from me. So, thanks. :smiley:

Probably not anywhere in the near-term future. It really depends on the support libraries that we use. The text engine comes with spelling and grammar checking, those are a part of Apple’s basic text kit. So they would need to implement homonym detection for Scrivener to have it. As far as I know, that’s cutting edge technology. The ability for software to detect contextual properties of language on a personal computer (not a room full of super computers) is very new.
