Abstract

Non-native speakers of English are faced with the 'second language problem' when required to interact with English-based information systems. This paper describes strategies for addressing the problem, which arises through difficulties in comprehension, in the context of Web-based information systems, by means of a dynamic annotation of English language Web pages.
