Detailed Analysis

Antidote carries out a detailed analysis of each sentence. If you wish to evaluate its diagnostics, or simply to satisfy your linguistic curiosity, you can consult the results of this analysis, which Antidote displays in linear form.

To view the detailed analysis of the current sentence, click on the button in the corrector’s toolbar. Antidote will display the detailed analysis in a separate window.

Each element of the sentence (word, expression, punctuation, etc.) is followed by its category and an indication of its syntactic function. It sometimes happens that a given sentence will have more than one analysis. When you view the detailed analysis, the number of alternate analyses is displayed in the upper left-hand corner of the window.

To navigate from one sentence to another, select the sentences one by one in the correction panel, or click on the last word of the current detailed analysis and use the down arrow key on the keyboard.

Printing the detailed analysis

To print an analysis, select the Print… option from the File menu. If there are multiple analyses, Antidote asks you to choose between printing the current analysis or printing all the analyses.
