Natural Language Toolkit for Indian Languages (iNLTK)

Project description

Natural Language Toolkit for Indian Languages (iNLTK)


pip install
pip install inltk

iNLTK runs on CPU and NOT on GPU, as is the desired behaviour for most of the Deep Learning models in production.

The first command above will install pytorch-cpu, which, as the name suggests, does not have cuda support.

Supported languages

Language Code <code-of-language>
Hindi hi
Punjabi pa
Sanskrit sa
Gujarati gu
Kannada kn
Malyalam ml
Nepali ne
Odia or
Marathi mr
Bengali bn


Setup the language

from inltk.inltk import setup

setup('<code-of-language>') // if you wanted to use hindi, then setup('hi')

Note: You need to run setup('<code-of-language>') when you use a language for the FIRST TIME ONLY. This will download all the necessary models required to do inference for that language.


from inltk.inltk import tokenize

tokenize(text ,'<code-of-language>') // where text is string in <code-of-language>

Predict Next 'n' words

from inltk.inltk import predict_next_words

predict_next_words(text , n, '<code-of-language>') 

// text --> string in <code-of-language>
// n --> number of words you want to predict (integer)

Note: You can also pass a fourth parameter, randomness, to predict_next_words. It has a default value of 0.8
