Readability Measures:
(These descriptions are taken from the documentation accompanying the Lingua::EN::Fathom perl module).

The Fog index, developed by Robert Gunning, is a well known and simple
formula for measuring readability. The index indicates the number of
years of formal education a reader of average intelligence would need to
read the text once and understand that piece of writing with its word
sentence workload:

18 – unreadable
14 – difficult
12 – ideal
10 – acceptable
8 – childish

This score rates text on a 100 point scale. The higher the score, the easier it is to understand the text. A score of 60 to 70 is considered to be optimal.

This score rates text on U.S. grade school level. So a score of 8.0
means that the document can be understood by an eighth grader. A score
of 7.0 to 8.0 is considered to be optimal.

So there you go. Christ, I must be bored.
