Title:
An evaluation of syntactic simplification rules for people with autism
Authors:
Evans, Richard; Orasan, Constantin; Dornescu, Iustin
Abstract:
Syntactically complex sentences constitute an obstacle for some people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. This paper evaluates a set of simplification rules specifically designed for tackling complex and compound sentences. In total, 127 different rules were developed for the rewriting of complex sentences and 56 for the rewriting of compound sentences. The evaluation assessed the accuracy of these rules individually and revealed that fully automatic conversion of these sentences into a more accessible form is not very reliable.
