    Does Word have a punctuation check as well as a spell check option? I'm
    writing a paper for my English class and I have trouble with run-on sentences
    and my punctuation. I didn't know if Word had a punctuation check or not.
    If not, could you please suggest a program to download? I would greatly
    appreciate it. Thank You.

    Word's grammar checker should work fine for what you want. In
    fact, you can control how much of what it allows or catches.

    Also make sure you have selected the correct language (i.e. English U.S.,
    English Canadian etc)

    Discourage auto-correct spelling. It harms spelling cognition.
