About the demo
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote the Sherlock Holmes series one hundred years ago, and writing style has changed since then. The passive voice has fallen out of favor, and "the" is used less frequently, just to name a couple of the changes. Additionally, Doyle gave his characters stylistic quirks to color their speech. As a consequence, the novel has more highlighting than one might expect from such a renowned work. One thing that stayed the same, however, is the importance of flow.

Smarter excessive prepositional phrase detection
Bust your writer's block, and create new metaphors by playing the word association game. To begin, type a word or phrase in the box below, and hit enter. To quickly find associations for your own text, highlight a word or phrase in it, and use the toolbox popup.
The associator uses artificial intelligence to learn contextual word associations from real literature, so it may return offensive results.
