This paper presents an approach contributing to the evaluation of linguistic complexity. Many different studies address this question. However, it remains very difficult to propose a precise evaluation on the basis of quantifiable criteria. The model we propose answers to this need thanks to an original representation of linguistic information by means of constraints. It brings together different complexity factors, coming from linguistic, psycholinguistic and computational domains.
