Rewordify.com helps people read more by intelligently simplifying English that contains hard words, and by teaching those hard words using state-of-the-art learning software.
Rewordify.com is such a great site that's helping so many people around the world, it's easy to forget that it's only a computer program. So, when using the site, please remember:
Rewordify.com cannot read or understand.
It is a computer program that tries to locate and simplify difficult words and phrases as intelligently as possible.
It cannot read sentences with simple words, understand the meanings of the words, and re-write the sentences using different words.
It cannot re-write text so that it targets a particular grade level.
No computer can:
So what's the point of the site, then? Rewordify.com is designed to find difficult (low frequency) words and phrases and simplify them. Why? So millions of readers can read, understand, and learn from real-world writing.
If you'd enter the sentence Quietly, the students saw doorways of opportunity opening for them, Rewordify.com can't help, because all the words in that sentence are simple, high-frequency words.
But, if you'd enter The didactic lexicon was ameliorating the student's illiteracy, the site can really, really help. (Try entering that sentence into the home page.)
This site helps the most when it's used by people who already have basic English reading skills, and who want an alternative way to improve vocabulary and understand text that contains many difficult words.
