EasyEnglish

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


EasyEnglish is a subset of the English language used for making the Bible text easy to understand.[1]

It is used to explain complex ideas in the Bible in a simple way.[2] EasyEnglish is used to make to Bible readable by everyone who has a minimal knowledge of English. EasyEnglish comes in two levels. "Level A" has about 1200 words. "Level B" has about 2800 words. Its rules include using one topic per paragraph.[2] It avoids using passive verbs, split infinitives, ambiguous pronouns and idioms.[2]

This vocabulary and its application rules are similar to those of VOA Special English, SPOTLIGHT Specialized English and Globish. All three are based on a vocabulary list of about 1500 words and guidelines on simple writing. In some way, the rules are also comparable to the simple English Wikipedia and Wiktionary guidelines.

EasyEnglish Bible

The EasyEnglish Bible is a translation of the Bible into EasyEnglish by MissionAssist (previously known as Wycliffe Associates UK). It uses British English. The EasyEnglish Bible can be found on the EasyEnglish Website (www.easyenglish.bible), the YouVersion Bible app, and on the MissionAssist page on the Google Play Store. The Gospels have been published as four separate books by the British and Foreign Bible Society.
