Two things come to mind, Evelyn:

1. The built-in Word readability analyses. You may have to reactivate
them under Tools-Options-Spelling and Grammar if you wish to use this
feature. It pops up after the spelling and grammar analysis of the
selected text is complete.

2. BullFighter, http://fightthebull.com/bullfighter.asp.

I had a plug in for MS Word that rated writing based on Plain English
standards - I found it very helpful for avoiding overly-obnoxious
academia-speak (read a lot of it - try not to write in it). I had a hard
drive crash and while i was pretty good with back-ups - this one got
lost.

I've checked out WordDog - but that does not sound familiar at all. As

i recall, the programmers were British (if that's a clue.) I'd like to
see if they'd give me a new license - if I can figure out who "they"
are.

Have any of you used a plug-in like this? Does it sound at all
familiar? Any clues to who the publisher may be?

Thanks,

Ev
