Gloss Maker | Language Learning Technology | Scoop.it

Glosses have been widely used in L2 reading instruction to help ELLs better comprehend a text without continually consulting learner or electronic dictionaries. This online gloss maker allows a text to be entered and the glosses created for specific vocabulary words.

 

This tool could possibly be used in collaboration with http://www.wordandphrase.info/ and http://www.lextutor.ca/

to identify which words are AWL words and perhaps at a higher level of difficulty. Both of these websites allow for texts to be copy and pasted for analysis of the lexical frequencies of words in texts.
