Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to motivate and describe a system that simplifies numerical expression in texts, along with an evaluation study in which experts in numeracy and literacy assessed the outputs of this system. We have worked with a collection of newspaper articles with a significant number of numerical expressions. The results are discussed in comparison to conclusions obtained from a prior empirical survey.
