Description

This is just a convenient wrapper function for readability.

Usage

1
RIX(txt.file, parameters = c(char = 6), ...)

Arguments

txt.file

...

Further valid options for the main function, see readability for details.

Details

This function calculates the Readability Index (RIX) by Anderson, which is a simplified version of the l\"asbarhetsindex (LIX) by Bj\"ornsson. In contrast to readability, which by default calculates all possible indices, this function will only calculate the index value.

This formula doesn't need syllable count.

Value

An object of class kRp.readability-class.
