Abstract: Our goal is to perform automatic simplification of a piece of text to enhance readability. We combine the two processes of summarization and simplification on the input text to effect improvement. We mimic the human acts of incremental learning and progressive refinement. The steps are based on: (i) phrasal units in the parse tree, yield clues (handles) on paraphrasing at a local word/phrase level for simplification, (ii) phrasal units also provide the means for extracting segments of a prototype summary, (iii) dependency lists provide the coherence structures for refining a prototypical summary. A validation and evaluation of a paraphrased text can be carried out by two methodologies: (a) standardized systems of readability, precision and recall measures, (b) human assessments. Our position is that a combined paraphrasing as above, both at lexical (word or phrase) level and a linguistic-semantic (parse tree, dependencies) level, would lead to better readability scores than either a pproach performed separately.
