Four tips for writers is what we bring today. Certainly one of them can help you in the task of writing, reading or searching. For this, we mentioned an application and 3 sites. Let’s meet them?
First tip: TALKER
This tip I consider one of the best. Do you know when you want to read some text on your computer, but at the same time you need to do something else? That sucks, does not it? If only there was someone who could read to you while you were busy with the other activity … Heureca! There is this “someone”!
It is a software that reads texts. CALM! Not one of those who read in a robot voice! I’m talking about software that you can download on this site, for free; after downloading, install it on your notebook or desktop and you’re done. When using it, copy the text you want to hear, click on the “talk” menu, and then choose the “from clipboard” option. It will start reading everything you copied. The program has very good voice and diction and gives due emphasis to each score.
I love to use it too whenever I write new text. After writing, I make it read and listen carefully to see if there is any kind of problem in the text. I’m sure you’ll love this tip too.
Second tip: Online dictionaries of Synonyms and Antonyms
Sometimes, as we write, it is only natural that what they call “giving white” occurs; we do everything to remind us of a specific word for the text and, suddenly, it resolves to hide beyond the limitations of our memory. There is nothing that reminds us of it; Does it hide under the tongue? We can remember a synonym, or antonym, but, damn … Nothing! Now, when this happens again with you, simply go to the Synonyms or Antonyms website. In one of the two, sure, you will know of her whereabouts. Do not forget! (at least that).
Third tip: GOOGLE ACADEMIC
The name itself already indicates: the site is recommended for academics and researchers. In the words of the website itself: “Google Scholar provides a simple way to search academic literature comprehensively. You can search multiple disciplines and sources in one place: peer-reviewed journals, theses, books, abstracts and articles from academic publishers, professional organizations, pre-publication libraries, universities and other academic entities. Google Scholar helps you identify the most relevant searches in the academic world. “
Fourth tip: ABL RESPONDE
The Brazilian Academy of Letters website (ABL) has many interesting tools for both the writer and the reader. It offers a field of research for more than 381 thousand entries, all written according to the new spelling; another to search for foreign words allowing to search for the foreign words that were incorporated into the Vocabulary of the Portuguese Language; and the ABL responds. Here you can ask questions about: punctuation, concordance, regency, crème and use of the word, placement of sentence terms and placement of unstressed pronouns and other syntax questions. However, they ask that whenever we want to ask a question, we must do it with the concrete examples and situations that motivated each question. As it is on the site itself, “You should not forward a general, vague question like: when using crase? It is hoped that the question is: How to write: I address myself to you and I am addressing you. “
For now, these are the tips we had to share. We will post more soon! We hope this information can be useful to you!
