Grammatik 6.0.1 is an independant grammar-checker for Macintosh word processor documents.
It has dictionaries for US English only.

A Novell product, it coincided with the release of Novell's WordPerfect 3.1 and can be launched from within that application (also WordPerfect 2.x & 3.5). Grammatik can be used as a stand-alone application to check the word processed documents made by other programs, too.

Architecture: 68k

68k native, runs under emulation on Power Macintosh. Not tested in SheepShaver by this user, but likely to work OK with Old World ROM & SheepShaver.

  1. Grammatik supports the following word processors:
    • ClarisWorks 1.0
    • FrameMaker (MIF) 2.0 - 3.0
    • LetterPerfect 2.1
    • MacWrite II 1.0 - 1.5
    • Microsoft Word 3.0 - 5.1
    • Microsoft Works 1.1 - 3.0
    • WordPerfect 2.0 - 3.x
    • WordPerfect Works 1.2.x
    • WriteNow 2.0. - 3.0
  2. In addition, Grammatik supports Rich Text Format (RTF) and text-only format.

Note: Checking version resources in ResEdit reveals alpha release.

Features such as WordPerfect integration require AppleScript (SSW 7.1 Pro and later).

The accompanying "Read•Me" text doc, states:
• In general, Grammatik's editor should not be used for making MAJOR changes to your document. Always make a backup copy of your document before checking it with Grammatik.

• If you experience odd behavior in Grammatik, such as not being able to turn off grammar rules, try turning off Virtual Memory on your Macintosh.

  it checks German grammar?

No, it has (US) English dictionaries only.

At a guess, the name is a pun that plays on an amalgamation of possibly three words, Grammar, Tick and/or Automatic (all misspelled and fused togeter), easily with just Grammar & Tick (minus the "r & c") to form Grammatik (Tick, as in "correct").
