The system currently offers about 25 types of feedback messages. The following list provides a sample message for each type, together with an example of a sentence that would prompt the message, and a sentence representing the 'correct' version (produced by the 'generate' button). Note that the message in most cases refers to a target word in exactly the inflected form in which it occurs in the exemplified input sentence, rather than by its lexical entry form.
A link to a page describing the phenomenon in question is also provided.
