Abstract:

Concepts and considerations relative to the measurement of textual readabilitycomprehensibility through psycholinguistics and through intellective variables are presented. Two experiments, each investigating the potential of each of these areas for readabilitycomprehensibility measurement, are described and the results of these experiments are given. The results supported a contention favoring the potential of psycholinguistics and intellective concepts for readabilitycomprehensibility measurement. Concepts are presented for automating the measurements described.
