A Python package to get stem of any inflected Bangla words.

Project description

Fatick Stemmer


Bengali is one of the most morphologically rich languages and it has lots of inflectional and derivational variant forms of a word. Because of that it is quite complicated to determine the stem of word.

Therefore our main focus was to program a light-weight library to determine a identical word for same type of inflected word as stem to run on any model.


Run the following to install:

  • using pip
pip install bangla-stemmer
  • using git
git clone
cd Bangla-stemmer
python install


Example 01:

from bangla_stemmer.stemmer import stemmer
wordlist = ['কবিরগুলিকে', 'আমাকে', 'নামাবার']
stmr = stemmer.BanglaStemmer()
stm = stmr.stem(word)

output: ['কবির', 'আমা', 'নামা']

Example 01:

from bangla_stemmer.stemmer.stemmer import BanglaStemmer
word = 'কবিরগুলিকে'
stm = BanglaStemmer().stem(word)

output: ['কবির', 'আমা', 'নামা']

Grammar Rule

The grammar rules applied here are based on the algorithm of Rafi Kamal. However some major and required modification has been made in this library in order to make it compatible with any model.
