Abstract: In this paper we present a generic approach to lexical simplification, that is easily applicable to many languages. Lexical simplification helps
children, illiterate, foreign, and disabled people to read texts, by replacing difficult words with words that are easier to understand. Although syntactic simplification has
received a lot of attention, the work on lexical simplification has been limited. The methods regard the integration of dictionary information with a latent words language model.
