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.
