THE SIMPLE ENGLISH WIKIPEDIA, an easy-to-read online encyclopedia for people who are learning English, written in Basic English.
Basic English is a constructed (made-up) language to explain complex thoughts. It has 850 basic English words chosen by Charles Kay Ogden. Some articles in the Simple English Wikipedia use only Basic English.
Articles in the Simple English Wikipedia use shorter sentences and simpler words and grammar than the English Wikipedia. The Simple English Wikipedia is for people with different needs. Some examples of people who use Simple English Wikipedia:
- People who are learning English
- Adults who might find it hard to learn or read
Other people use the Simple English Wikipedia because the simple language helps them understand hard ideas or topics they do not know about.
The Simple English Wikipedia's articles can be used to help with school homework or just for the fun of learning about new ideas.
Most Simple English articles take articles from other Wikipedias and make them simple; they are usually not new articles.
Right now, the Simple English Wikipedia has over 120 thousands articles. No one can read them all. But what articles to read, how to start?
