Marcia Coulter is right. The results of readability indeces have to be
prefaced with "in many cases" or "in context XXX". Or they need a lot of
*unless* clauses attached to them. That said, does anyone
know whether a context-sensitive readability index exists? On a realted
topic, do context-sensitive grammar checkers exist? If not, someone
could make a lot of money developing them. I find the others create more
editing work than they save.
