I've removed the following text and external link because it no longer works (webpage times out).
Might be worth adding something in about correctly identifying the number of syllables in words when calculating readability scores, but it is not an issue specific to SMOG.
Numerous online calculators give the SMOG level of submitted text or a URL but only the SMOG Calculator listed below as an external link uses a dictionary to look up the syllable length of words . Because of this, the SMOG Calculator counts syllables more accurately than any other readability program.

- Not wanting to deal with legalese of the GFDL and merge SMOG Index here, I've starting writing on the subpage. —Dispenser (talk) 01:44, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
- I, G. Harry McLaughlin Neuroling am the author and copyright holder of the document in question which, like SMOG, has always been in the public domain. I have now added a GDFL notice to it because Agvulpine imagined that there was a copyright violation. Because of his further concerns I have provided information in SMOG Index showing that SMOG was published in a refereed journal, had outstandingly high correlation with its criterion, and has been widely used e.g. by the NIH. As I obviously do not fully understand the ways of Wikipedia I invite Dispenser to use my contributions as he sees fit. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Neuroling (talk • contribs) 21:48, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Copyvio tag removed
I have looked at the source cited, and found that it now carries a GFDL license. Since this is enough for Wikipedia, I have reverted the copyvio notice. Thanks to everyone! --Alvestrand (talk) 15:14, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
- Do we need to included a boilerplate message for attribution? —Dispenser (talk) 21:34, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Is SMOG defined?
The title SMOG (Simple Measure Of Gobbledygook) is an incoming redirect, that some articles link through.
But, the word "Gobbledygook" does not appear in the 1969 paper.
