This paper presents the NiinMikäOli?! reading assistant for Finnish. The focus is upon the simplified presentation and visualisation of a wide range of word-level linguistic phenomena of the Finnish language in a unified form so as to benefit language learners. The system is available as a browser extension, intended to be used in-context, with authentic texts, in order to encourage free reading in language learners.
