Learning a lexical simplifier using Wikipedia 52nd Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, ACL 2014 - Proceedings of the Conference English 2014 In this paper we introduce a new lexical simplification approach. We extract over 30K candidate lexical simplifications by identifying aligned words in a sentence-aligned corpus of English Wikipedia with Simple English Wikipedia. To apply these rules, we learn a feature-based ranker using SVM rank trained on a set of labeled simplifications collected using Amazon's Mechanical Turk. Using human simplifications for evaluation, we achieve a precision of 76% with changes in 86% of the examples. 0 0

Simple English Wikipedia: A new text simplification task ACL-HLT 2011 - Proceedings of the 49th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies English 2011 In this paper we examine the task of sentence simplification which aims to reduce the reading complexity of a sentence by incorporating more accessible vocabulary and sentence structure. We introduce a new data set that pairs English Wikipedia with Simple English Wikipedia and is orders of magnitude larger than any previously examined for sentence simplification. The data contains the full range of simplification operations including rewording, reordering, insertion and deletion. We provide an analysis of this corpus as well as preliminary results using a phrase-based translation approach for simplification. 0 0
