The ultimate goal of this project is to create a grammatical analyzer that will examine a Word document and ensure certain grammatical and stylistic rules are implemented. In this first iteration, the grammatical rules in Strunk's Elements of Style will be implemented (<[url removed, login to view]>)
I understand this is a rather large project, but we want to encourage reuse of currently existing tools / software. Any third-party or open source component is encouraged to be use, provided we are first notified of it and there is no fee based licensing required.
This can be written in any computer language provided it can eventually be integrated into Microsoft Word as an Addin. It is preferred that the application be written in .Net.

One thing to keep in mind is that there needs to be at least a framework for adding different stylistic and grammatical rules in the future. Strunk's book is just the first one we'd like to see implemented.
