Phrases to Avoid/Consider¶
PerfectIt checks for phrases to avoid as specified in the selected style sheet.
If a style sheet suggests avoiding terms such as ‘handicapped’, the best alternative may well depend on context. So rather than suggesting a replacement, this check just offers a style note. In this case, that might say ‘Use positive terms about disability instead of out-of-date terms’.
