That's very difficult, there a 4 levels:

1) checking the words against a dictionary or word list,
2) checking the remainder for legal derivates,
3) checking for the mandatory elements of a good sentence to be present or defined,
4) checking for the meaning of a sentence in the context of earlier sentences.

1 & 2 are done by a spelling checker.
3 is sometimes done by a grammar checker.
4 requires artificial intelligence of a high level.

If you pick a spell checker from the public domain, you'll see
how difficult even levels 1 & 2 are; let alone the rest .....

;JOOP!
