**Word sense disambiguation and lexical substitution in French**
The recruited post-doc researcher will work at Laboratoire Parole et
Langage in Aix en Provence. The researcher will work in the ANR project

develop tools for reading assistance for dyslexic children based on
automatic text simplification.
The mission of the post-doc includes two main goals. On the one hand, it
will be necessary to develop original methods for **lexical substitution**,
taking into account intra-lexical and statistical criteria. Therefore, the

including **multiword expressions**, for which a complexity degree must be
Publishing the results and transferring them to the partner teams in the
project will also be part of the post-doc missions.
