I just finished writing and reviewing my masters thesis; however, I was wondering if there is an advanced grammar/style tool that'll go through my thesis and identify anything I've missed

Edit:

The tool(s) don't have to be opensource rather I'm looking for a semi reliable advanced grammar (not spell checker) checker

Check out http://www.paperrater.com/. It pregrades your paper, highly recommend...just copy and paste!

Online, FREE, no registration, and offers suggestions, etc.

So many features for free, it's basically someone reading it and making suggestions, but you have to send your paper to them. I'm sensing a catch somewhere, since I can't see clearly their business model. –  Gnoupi Apr 26 '10 at 14:55
    
@Gnoupi, I've tried sending them a paper before, and they gave me the results within seconds...have yet to find a catch, at least to the extent that I used it. –  studiohack Apr 26 '10 at 14:58
    
withing seconds is not from an actual person, then, so I can see the point, I think. Free version is probably used to refine the program with different sources, in order to provide their later premium service. –  Gnoupi Apr 26 '10 at 15:15

http://www.whitesmoke.com/products.html I haven't used it personally. Looks like they're running a special now, the software is about $100.

OpenOffice and OpenOffice Addons. Check them out, there are really advanced spell checker tools. (You can use the Openoffice portable also. Extensions link: http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/ )

Best combination for spellchecking. :)
