In Politics and the English Language George Orwell sets out a few simple rules for writing clear, conscise english. Orwell himself doesn't always follow his rules, but they're helpful to keep in mind. This is a tool designed to alert an author to violations of these rules so the author can choose whether or not to change the text in question.
I've wanted to play with NLP and Python's NLTK for quite a while now, and this seemed like a reasonable exercise in the relatively easy and the complex (I'm not sure how number 1 will work, for example). That's what this amounts to: an exercise for me to learn NLP and NLTK. Use at your own risk.
