  Description     : Minor mode for Emacs to improve English writing

This is a minor mode to aid in finding common writing problems. Matt
Might’s weaselwords scripts inspired this mode.

It highlights text based on a set of weasel-words, passive-voice and
duplicate words.


I use this when writing journalistic articles, fairly useful. No
dependencies that I know of.

LWN made a review of similar tools for Emacs here and here:


... but I haven't found something better just yet.

I'd be happy to comaintain this with the elpa team if no one steps
