Proofreading means the correction of spelling, grammar, syntax and punctuation. Linguistic auditing involves working through the text – a particularly challenging task.

Linguistic auditing is concerned with style: the classical, normative stylistic method built upon the spoken (heard) language. The work was carried out in two dimensions: (1) in the precision or beauty located in the right choice of words, guided by the four virtues of eloquence: linguistic accuracy, clarity, beauty and adaptability; and (2) in the rhythm to be found in the unfolding of the text. A linguistic audit, then, consists of editing and, where necessary, completely rewriting those passages in need of a loving hand. Culturebites has extensive experience in the field of linguistic auditing, both for nonfiction and academic art texts.
