Abstract

We investigate sentence deletion and split decisions in Spanish text simplication for two different corpora aimed at different groups of users. We analyse sentence transformations in two parallel corpora of original and manually simplied texts for two different types of users and then conduct two classication experiments: classifying between those sentences to be deleted and those to be
kept; and classifying between sentences to be split and those to be left unsplit. Both experiments were run on each of the two corpora separately and then run by using one corpus for the
training and the other for testing. The results indicated that both sentence decision systems could be successfully trained on one corpus and then used for a different text genre in a text simplication system aimed at a different target population.
