Complex Words

The categorization of words as either common or complex is an essential element in many readability calculations. A higher percentage of known or common words will result in text that is more readily comprehensible by a wider audience.

This report characterizes whether a word is complex or common based on the number of syllables in that word. Words containing three or more syllables are highlighted as complex.
