CVLA assigns CEFR levels to the words based on CEFR-J Wordlist
(Created by Y. Tono). An estimated level of the input text is displayed based on 4 textual features (ARI, VperSent, AvrDiff, and BperA; detailed explanation will appear after submission). This website is created by Satoru UCHIDA
. This is the second edition of the CVLA, which works faster and shows results per sentence. The results may be slightly different from the former version due to the implementation difference (perl vs. python). Your feedback is truly appreciated. (kyudai.uchida.lab[at]gmail.com)
CVLA version 1.1 (older version) will no longer be available after August 31st, 2023.
