Lexical Complexity Analysis with NT2LexThis tool enables you to analyze the lexical difficulty of a text for foreign language learners. Read more expand_more
CEFR proficiency level
For researchers or teachers: you can pick the specific proficiency level which interests you. For learners: you can use your own proficiency level.
CEFR-based Lexical Complexity
For each word in the text (except for numerical units and named entities), the tool computes its difficulty according to the CEFR scale. The level of difficulty corresponds to the CEFR level as attested in the chosen resource. In order to define this proficiency level, the tool selects the first level in which the lexical unit is observed.
Different color schemes are used to label the word's difficulty level.
Stop words and named entities are automatically ignored. The unknown words, i.e. words that are missing in the resource are highlighted in red. Since they have not been observed in L2 materials, they are considered the most difficult.
CEFR-based Complex Word Identification
The program identifies complex words for a specific proficiency level by identifying the words with a CEFR difficulty level beyond the proficiency level that you have chosen. These complex words have been highlighted.
To obtain more information, you can click on each complex word to see its CEFR level, its lemma, its part of speech and its graded frequency distribution.
And finally ...
Once you have submitted your text and run the analysis, you will be able to visualise the distribution of the different levels of CEFR for your text and dynamically filter the words according to their level of difficulty.
