Lexical Simplification

8 papers with code · Natural Language Processing

The goal of Lexical Simplification is to replace complex words (typically words that are used less often in language and are therefore less familiar to readers) with their simpler synonyms, without infringing the grammaticality and changing the meaning of the text.
