Abstract:

In Study 1, the reading complexity of 76 Canadian police cautions was assessed using five measures (Flesch-Kincaid reading level, sentence complexity, use of difficult words, use of infrequent words, and number of words). Results showed that nine (24%) of the right to silence cautions (n = 38) and none of the right to legal counsel cautions (n = 38) met all readability measures. In Study 2, participants (N = 121) were verbally presented with one of three cautions, varying in complexity, and asked to explain its meaning. Results showed that participants understood approximately 30% of the information contained in the cautions.
