In response to the severe dearth of graded reader fiction in Arabic and the absence of any scale of simplification, the main objective of the Simplification of Arabic Masterpieces for Extensive Reading (SAMER) project at New York Unviersity Abu Dhabi is to create a standard for the simplification of modern fiction in Arabic to school-age learners and to use this standard to simplify a number of Arabic fiction masterpieces.
