This is awesome. Now if we can just get every academic researcher out there to write papers with this ;)

I'm sure there are use-cases for this - for example, writing a book for five-year olds... but let's not dumb down our beautiful and expressive language purely for efficiency's sake, please!

This reminds me of Ernest Hemingway’s response when William Faulkner criticized him for writing with simple words. “Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words? He thinks I don’t know the ten-dollar words. I know them all right. But there are older and simpler and better words, and those are the ones I use.”

Nice! Love it! Have you thought of showing the recommended words since finding the right word that's in top 1k may take a while, especially for non-native speakers?
