What’s a lemmatizer?
Lemmatization is a tool of computational linguistics that does the work of extracting the lexical roots of words. It does not rely on sentence construction but on the lexicon, bringing out the root form of the word without inflection (no “s” for plural or other suffixes, for example).
Importing the library & your personal API key
If you want to extract the lexical roots of words you can use the lemmatization tool.
First you’ll need to have your document saved to your computer and the Lettria SDK installed.
First I am going to import the Lettria library.
Next, add your personal API key to the nlp.
api_key = ‘api_key’ nlp = lettria.NLP(api_key)
Adding your document
Next you'll need to add your document.
with open("example.txt", "r") as f: example_data = f.readlines() nlp.add_document(example_data)
In order to extract the lemma for each token in a sentences you can print the following command.
print([s.lemma for s in nlp.sentences])
Saving your results
In order to save your results you can use the following command.
And a json file with you results that can be used for further analysis will be saved.
Import lettria api_key = ‘api_key’ nlp = lettria.NLP(api_key) with open("example.txt", "r") as f: example_data = f.readlines() nlp.add_document(example_data) print([s.lemma for s in nlp.sentences]) nlp.save_results(‘example_results')
