Abstract: With the ever-growing presence of electronic devices in our everyday lives, it is compelling to investigate how technology can contribute to make our language learning process more efficient and enjoyable. A fundamental piece in this puzzle is the ability to measure the complexity of the language that learners are able to deal with and produce at different stages of their progress. In this thesis work, we explore automatic approaches for modeling linguistic complexity at different levels of ... more
