Abstract [en]

Spell checkers are nowadays a common occurrence in most editors. A student writing an essay in school will often have the availability of a spell checker. However, the feedback from a spell checker seldom correlates with the feedback from a teacher. A reason for this being that the teacher has more aspects on which it evaluates a text. The teacher will, as opposed to the the spell checker, evaluate a text based on aspects such as genre adaptation, structure and word variation. This thesis evaluates how well those aspects translate to NLP (Natural Language Processing) and implements those who translate well into a rule based solution called Granska.

Abstract [sv]

Grammatikgranskare finns numera tillgängligt i de flesta ordbehandlare. En student som skriver en uppsats har allt som oftast tillgång till en grammatikgranskare. Dock så skiljer det sig mycket mellan den återkoppling som studenten får från grammatikgranskaren respektive läraren. Detta då läraren ofta har fler aspekter som den använder sig av vid bedömingen utav en elevtext. Läraren, till skillnad från grammatikgranskaren, bedömmer en text på aspekter så som hur väl texten hör till en viss genre, dess struktur och ordvariation. Denna uppsats utforskar hur pass väl dessa aspekter går att anpassas till NLP (Natural Language Processing) och implementerar de som passar väl in i en regelbaserad lösning som heter Granska.
