While still within the realm of information theory, a measure referred to as the type-token ratio provides a simple yet theoretically based approach for determining lexical complexity.
Type-Token Ratio. Johnson (1944) defined the type-token ratio (TTR) as the number of different words (types) contained in a passage divided by the passage's total number of words (token).
While the type-token ratio is not the only mechanism that can be used to measure complexity in a passage, Silverman (1977) considers TTR "the simplest and most used of the more general group of type-token measures which have been applied to written and spoken language." Silverman also argued that TTR could be viewed as either an index of verbal diversity or as an index of verbal repetition.
Inasmuch as the use of type-token ratio lends itself to measuring the degree of complexity of a text, this formula can be deemed suited for use in determining if the complexity of an advertisement's text affects its readership.
As suggested earlier, copy complexity was assessed in terms of the type-token ratio. In order to measure the TTR, three independent coders counted total and separate words for each ad.
In the corpus under study, translated texts represent a wide continuum of quality in which creativity and type-token ratios directly correlate with error counts.
