Learning a lexical simplifier using Wikipedia is a 2014 conference paper written in English by Horn C., Manduca C., Kauchak D. and published in 52nd Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, ACL 2014 - Proceedings of the Conference.
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.
