Abstract:In this paper; we analyze existing readability measures regarding their applicability to self-directed language learning. We identify a set of dimensions for text complexity and focus on the lexical; syntactic; semantic; and discourse dimensions. We argue that for the purposes of self-directed language learning; the assessment according to the individual dimensions should be preferred over the overall readability prediction. Furthermore; due to the heterogeneity of the learners in such a setting; modeling the background knowledge of the learner becomes a critical step.
