Sentences with high readability

The search option "easy sentences only", applies a filtering criterion to the data retrieved from the corpus. Sentences are filtered according to three criteria:

Advanced vocabulary

Type-token ratio

A higher Gulpease score indicates higher readability of a text, with the following benchmarks defined:
