2010 is a long time ago in terms of machine learning.  It's also
possible to construct a rule semantics that incorporates machine

There's this directory in languagetool's source code that appears to
provide infrastructure for using some RPC protocol for "MLServer"s:
One common expansion of "ML" is "machine learning", so it's *possible*
that this provides infrastructure for consulting some machine learning
service.  Determining what it is actually used for, whether the RPC
services are local or remote, and whether it is used in the free
version or is simply infrastructure for the premium service, would
require much more investigation than I am willing to perform any time
soon.  Hence, I don't know.
