Corpus analysis has potential as a source of insight on language constituency. We describe a project whose objective is to employ such insights, drawn from statistical or frequency analyses, as a means of predicting the likely match between a readers' reading comprehension level and one or more target texts. With this possibility, we provide a means of selecting reading materials that are suited to individual abilities. This has promising application both for native English speakers and for second language learners of English. Our approach to this aim is detailed in this paper.
