Creating custom grammar and dictionary in either MS Office or Open Office?
I know that both OO and MSO will allow custom dictionaries. I am working on an ambitious project to rewrite the grammatical rules for written English.
Is there a way to throw out the current rules and rewrite them so only the newly adopted rules are applied?
Ideally I envision a person being able to write in conventional plain English and the software effectively translating it into the new form, applying all applicable grammatical rules.
I have a page that covers some of what I'm shooting for at http://www.associatedcontent.com/art..._me.html?cat=4
IO also have a page on Facebook, "The Millennial English Project" if you would like to give feed back or offer linguistic suggestions

A user can turn off Word's built-in grammar checking and install a third party add-in, but I don't know of a way for a third party add-in to integrate directly in place of Microsoft's proofing tools.
Perhaps that isn't really what you want. Have you taken a look at AutoCorrect? I think there might be some ultimate limit to the number of AutoCorrect entries, but you can get a lot of the most common words in there.
Comment: Separate and apart from the question of pronunciation, having a lot of capital letter mixed into text is a bit of an eyesore.
