My first article has been denied and reason is-

Article either uses English awkwardly or has excessive spelling and/or grammatical issues. Proof read your article or get a friend to look over it before resubmitting.

Now my article contains words which are considered as spelling mistakes by IB's writing tool but they are the most appropriate and widely used for the related contents such as headshots, wallbangs, bot_dont_kill 1. My article has some 10-12 such words.

Now use of such words cause rejection of my article or grammatical issues caused problems.

Any help is appreciated from bottom of my heart..

No offence, but your post here seems pretty grammatically incorrect, which makes it a bit hard to read. Maybe you could bone-up on your grammar here: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/1/5/

i also suggest reading a bunch of posts each day to familiarize yourself with English grammar so that you can get a feel for how a sentence should sound. For example, your sentence:

"Now use of such words cause rejection of my article or grammatical issues caused problems" should sound something like this:

"My article has been rejected either because of these words or because of other grammatical issues."

See what I did there? I put the subject at the front of the sentence (to reduce confusion), used past tense verbs (since it has already happened), and explained the potential reason for your rejection clearly and concisely. 

I hope this helps at least a little bit. Good luck and don't give up! English is a very complicated language. its my native tongue and I still haven't figured it out ;)

This might help you:


Your article is read by a human, and so the occasional use of a word that makes sense to humans but not the spell checker does not automatically invalidate your article. Based on your post, it's quite likely a grammar issue; those editors can be picky. They're selected that way for a reason--to keep IB's standards up.
