You might be able to adapt languagetool. 
http://www.danielnaber.de/languagetool/features.html

Later versions have been ported to Java, but the old python version of
languagetool is at http://tkltrans.sourceforge.net/#r03

His thesis paper is at

Mind you, given the poor language skills of many native english speakers
(not to mention those for whom english is a second language) relying on
automated filters to enforce 'good' language seems a trifle extreme.  This
post for example would probably not pass.

Cheers,

PS. For the humour impaired, this g*d d*mm post was a f*cking joke, OK! :-)

Mind you, the links are real.
