  "abstract": "<p>In this work, we analyse whether&nbsp;Wikipedia can be used to leverage simplification pairs instead of Simple Wikipedia,&nbsp;which has proved unreliable for assessing automatic simplification systems, and&nbsp;is available only in English. We focus&nbsp;on sentence pairs in which the target sentence is the outcome of a Wikipedia edit&nbsp;marked as &lsquo;simplified&rsquo;, and manually annotate simplification phenomena following an existing scheme proposed for previous simplification corpora in Italian.&nbsp;The outcome of this work is the SIMPITIKI corpus, which we make freely available, with pairs of sentences extracted&nbsp;from Wikipedia edits and annotated with&nbsp;simplification types. The resource contains also another corpus with roughly&nbsp;the same number of simplifications, which&nbsp;was manually created by simplifying documents in the administrative domain</p>",
