Future research directions

  1. We recently won a grant from the British Academy to begin a project to explore the concept of readability in other languages and scripts. This will begin by looking at the case of Malaysia, but will also explore Chinese scripts and other languages in time.
  2. We are preparing a proposal for a grant to explore changing readability in the textbooks used in UK schools over the past 20 or so years. We hope to extend this to Malay textbooks in time.
  3. We are exploring the possibility of working with the examinations board in Malaysia to look at readability issues in Malay language examinations.
