LanguageTool is a style and grammar checker that currently supports English, Polish, German, French, Dutch, and other languages to a different degree. It scans the words and their part-of-speech tags for occurrences of error patterns, which are defined in an XML file. More powerful error rules can be written in Java. LanguageTool should be used after the spelling of a text has been corrected.
The Parsing Expression Grammar Template Library (PEGTL) is a C++0x library for creating parsers according to a Parsing Expression Grammar (PEG). Grammars are embedded as regular C++ code, created with template programming (not template meta programming). These hierarchies naturally correspond to the inductive definition of PEGs. The library extends on the subject of PEGs with new expression types, actions that can be attached to grammar rules, and mechanisms to ensure helpful diagnostics in case of parsing errors. PEGs are superficially similar to Context-Free Grammars (CFGs).
Voca is a vocabulary trainer for foreign languages. It allows you to create and manage your own word lists and share them online.

XML-Grammar-Fiction is a Perl package that provides processors for lightweight markup languages and corresponding XML grammars for writing prose (e.g. stories, novels, and novellas) as well as screenplays. The XML grammars can in turn be translated to XHTML and DocBook/XML. XML-Grammar-Fiction currently offers only very basic functionality, but has good support for UTF-8 and allows one to write bidirectional texts conveniently. It is still under development and may exhibit some quirks.
After the Deadline checks English spelling, misused words, style, and grammar using artificial intelligence and natural language processing. This add-on adds After the Deadline's smart technology to the Firefox browser. Now you can check grammar in your online word processor, spell check your Web mail, and send tweets with confidence.
After the Deadline for OpenOffice.org is a smart English grammar, style, and contextual spelling checker for OpenOffice.org. The grammar checker highlights common errors in your writing. The style checker (off by default) finds passive voice, clichés, redundant phrases, and complex expressions. The contextual spelling checker looks for misused words and reports them to you. This extension communicates with an open source software service to check your writing. You may run your own server or use that provided by afterthedeadline.com. Text sent to afterthedeadline.com is sent over SSL and none of it is kept.
Replo is a cross-platform utility for performing syntactically-aware diff, find, and replace operations. It is similar to IntelliJ's "structural find and replace" feature but allows for configurable grammars. With Replo, users can compare, detect, and replace idiomatic structures without worrying about irrelevant stylistic inconsistencies. Common grammars (e.g. C, C++, C#, Java, Ruby) are provided, but users can also leverage ANTLR to define their own.
