Computerized writing aid systems ideally determine whether word usage in written text is appropriate both syntactically and semantically. Currently developed computerized writing aid systems are reviewed with emphasis on their methods for and success at grammar checking. A limited homonym checker and correction advisor is devised and implemented using the Prolog programming language and artificial intelligence techniques. Insight is gained into the problem of developing a comprehensive computerized system for determining appropriate syntactic and semantic word usage.
