What does this English Grammar Profiler do?

1. First, it works at the single word or token level. It assigns and highlights a CEFR level to vocabulary found in the English Vocabulary Profile (EVP). This is done by part of speech (POS) for more accuracy but still uses the lowest sense of the word. It also highlights vocabulary not found in the EVP but is found in the New Academic Word List (NAWL). This happens first because there are some grammar points that will later refer to vocabulary range.
2. Next, it works on groups of tokens to assign a CEFR level to grammar points found in the English Grammar Profile and phrases found in the EVP. By rolling your mouse over a highlight, a brief explanation appears or you can click on an underlined link to a page with more corpus information about it.
3. Finally, it compares the proportions of all the CEFR highlights in the text to the proportions found in large samples of the Cambridge Learner Corpus (CLC).
Limitations: We guess that about 15% of grammar points cannot be identified with form alone in addition to the ambiguity, overlapping and clashing CEFR levels across the EGP and EVP. Learner texts with language errors or spoken texts with non-standard language or punctuation will disrupt tagging and analysis. It does not report absolutley every language feature because we believe, for example, there is no point in marking an A1 noun phrase if it is a C2 idiomatic phrase. There is no perfect POS tagging software that exists.

You can edit any incorrect tags using the following CLAWS7 tagset on this page:
