diction

https://www.gnu.org/software/diction/
Checks text for readability and bad usage.

This program includes both 'diction' and 'style'. 'Diction' identifies wordy and commonly misused phrases; 'style' analyzes surface characteristics of a document, including sentence length and other readability measures. While these programs cannot help you structure a document well, they can help to avoid poor wording and compare the readability of your document with others. Both commands support English and German documents.
