GrammarBrain is the home of the English language. Our goal is to provide the most authoritative information about the English language. Please read our editorial policy to learn how we fact-check every article before publishing.

Our goal

English is one of the most frequently spoken languages across the globe. Although, English can be difficult to comprehend. Certain words, phrases, and connotations behind English words can be confusing for those who either already know English or plan to learn it.

As the digital era begins to shift how we communicate, our goal is to provide the most up-to-date, fact-checked information about the English language.

We believe so strongly in the need to preserve the English language that we started a scholarship to support these efforts.

Our sourcing policy

To provide our readers with authoritative content, we exclusively use reputable sources to uncover the keenest insights. We will never publish a fact or data point without reviewing it for authenticity and authority.

Our data sources include:

  • Legitimate linguistic resources (Wiktionary, Webster’s, and more).
  • College and university-level research papers.
  • Cutting-edge information from top linguists in the nation.

This organization commits to doing its best to publish accurate information across all of its content. We take many steps to ensure accuracy:

  • Analyze evidence; correct errors transparently and swiftly; and learn from mistakes so they don’t impact your ability to learn and gain knowledge.
  • Never plagiarize and never deliberately distort facts or context, including visual information.
  • Cite the sources of the English language and linguistics.
  • Honorably uses high-quality sources, including peer-reviewed studies, to support the facts within our articles.
  • We link to relevant third-party websites whenever appropriate to provide additional information and informed content.
  • We work our best to build empirical evidence and claims without bias.
  • GrammarBrain itself is impartial and does not offer opinions.
