Linguistic focus is a new feature in Scrivener 3. November - and NaNoWriMo - is well and truly over, and we now have Scrivener 3, so you might be tempted to start editing your NaNo novel - that's if you've finished writing it! Personally, I'd recommend you put it aside for at least two or three months.
