ChatGPT for proofreading?



There are various problems when using ChatGPT or other automatic tools, such as Wordeep.com and others, for proofreading or grammar correction. Here, we will see a case study of a comparison between results obtained from a human proofreader and texts that are automatically generated by ChatGPT. As you will see, ChatGPT can sometimes change the meaning of the text, and in general it is not necessarily providing genuine and reliable information.

Here is the correction made by one of our proofreaders:

Hi All,

Good day to you all. Today is Tuesday
, and it is a lovely day.

The deadline for the current task for our amazing students is due shortly. I have reminded you before and

First, you can immediately see the number of changes made by ChatGPT, which can completely change the nuances or meaning of the original author.

Second, the large amount of changes can make the life of the original author of the text more unwieldy, since it takes more time to compare the changes of the ChatGPT, especially when some of them are not required. Submitting a text generated by ChatGPT without a proper review or comparison with the original text is definitely not recommended.

You can observe many unneeded changes, such as "to you all" -> "everyone", "it is" -> "it's", and more. The whole sentence about "There should be no questions" was changed in meaning to "for any questions". The author didn't want to receive questions, but the altered text does. Furthermore, the author wanted the reader to remind the students that the exams are multiple-choice, but the altered text changed it to "remind the students that they are not difficult", which is different in meaning.
