I'm working on a longer prose text and I would like to have some automatic assistance to check my use of past and present tense throughout the text. My usual test suite (aspell, LanguageToolCheck, chktex) does not cover this, and I didn't find another plugin or vim function online that would help me with that. These are some of my ideas how it could look like:
- highlight all verbs, so it is easier to check them manually
- highlight all verbs and color code their tense
- iteratively check my text (like aspell/LanguageToolCheck) and warn me whenever I switch tenses
Is there any tool out there? If not, is there maybe a vim function that recognizes verbs? The text is in English.
