Hopefully NOT like Microsoft Word, which gives out appallingly bad advice from its grammar checker! But yes, it would be possible to write a grammar checker in Java, if that's what you meant.

and a degree in computer linguistic will help you a lot...

seriously - a spoken language does not build on complete logic. you cannot define a set of validatable rules if you want to check a text. that's probably why a StringBuffer ships without a validateGrammar(Locale loc) method.

If you mean - do we know of an existing solution, the answer is no.
If you mean - can we lay out a course of study that might lead you to a solution, the answer is yes.

How much time do you have, I'm thinking this might be a good Masters degree project.
