Sometimes it gets hard to know if a metaphor used in our mother language keeps working in English. The References tab allows you to search for a phrase, or part of it, in popular English publications. When Typenik finds some reference, you can go to the article and check if it matches or not your intention.

Another common situation is to make sure about the correct prepositions. Spelling and grammar checkers will point to you whether they are incorrect, but it is not enough. In the following examples, both prepositions are correct: a) I am in the hospital, b) I am at the hospital. Yet, they have very different meanings. Exploring references in popular publications is all you need to clear up this kind of doubt too.

I enjoy writing b/c swapping one word can change the feel of an idea. "Buried under email" —> "Buried beneath email". The B B alliteration upgrades the rhythm. Writing is music. Plus, "beneath" adds to the suppressive power of buried. "Under" just can’t muster the same feel.

Better understand to better express

The more you know something, the better you can communicate it. A foreign language is not an exception to this. The more you go deep on it, the better you master it. To end up with clear writing and the perfect words, you need a good understanding of English from the start. Typenik covers it through tabs like Expressions, Conjugations, Definitions, and Images.
