P-Lex: A Simple and Effective Way of Describing the lexical Characteristics of Short L2 Tests.
Meara, Paul; Bell, Huw
Prospect, v16 n3 p5-19 Dec 2001
Describes an alternative approach to assessing the lexical complexity of short texts produced by second language learners of English that bears a passing resemblance to the Lexical Frequency Profile (LFP) but is mathematically more sophisticated and easier to work with. Argues that P-Lex produces data that is broadly comparable with the data produced by LFP. (Adjunct ERIC for ESL Literacy Education) (Author/VWL)
