    Default Lexical density

    Is there anything, like a Lexical density test, that can measure how easy it is for a sentence to be understood when it is spoken?

    Regards,

    Ben

    Not quite. I gathered that the Lexical Density Test can be used to determine the 'Readability' of text. What about verbal exchanges, or rather, how easy is it to understand a sentence when it is spoken?

    It would have to be transcribed.
