Computational tools and resources play an important role for vocabulary acquisition. Although a large variety of dictionaries and learning games are available, few resources provide information about the complexity of a word, either for learning or for comprehension. The idea here is to use frequency counts combined with intralexical variables to account for the difficulty of a word. By using such predictors, we have built a lexical resource for French, ReSyf, where words are available with their word senses and their synonyms according to a complexity level. In this paper, we will present the methodology used to build the resource and we will discuss possible applications, from enhancing vocabulary acquisition to text simplification.
