MLSP Shared Task at BEA 2024

Lexical simplification is the process of identifying complex words and replacing them with simpler alternatives. Previous shared tasks such as SemEval-2021 Task 1 Lexical Complexity Prediction (LCP) and TSAR-2022 considered sub-tasks such as complex word identification and lexical substitution in isolation. To fill this gap, we propose the Multilingual Lexical Simplification Pipeline (MLSP) shared task which will include multiple sub-tasks of the pipeline in a single shared task.

The Multilingual Lexical Simplification Pipeline (MLSP) shared task hosted at BEA 2024 provides participants with new annotated datasets in various languages.
