Query:   Dear linguists,

For work related to my PhD I am looking for free (maybe even open source)
tools for grammar checking and error diagnosis in German.

I am aware of the LanguageTool Open Source language checker
( and of research prototypes as described in
Berthold Crysmann; Nuria Bertomeu; Peter Adolphs; Daniel Flickinger;
Tina Kl├╝wer: Hybrid Processing for Grammar and Style Checking, In
Proceedings of COLING08
Fortmann, Christian, Martin Forst (2004): An LFG grammar checker for
CALL, In Proceedings of ICALL-2004.

However, the problems with these is, that their coverage is limited
and/or they are not readily available for use in other contexts.

Does anyone know of any other tools? We want to use it especially for
diagnosing German learner language.

We will summarize responses, thank you in advance,
Sabrina Wilske and Magdalena Wolska
