Multilingual natural language tools, wrapping NLTK and other systems.

Project Description

This package provides wrappers around NLTK and other systems to provide convenient natural language tools, such as:

  • Stopword removers
  • Word frequency lookup
  • Lemmatizers (which reduce words to their root form, possibly taking part-of-speech tags into account)
  • Analyzers for East Asian languages (for example, we currently use a MeCab process to find word breaks in Japanese)

For word frequencies in some language, metanl uses corpora from the University of Leeds Center for Translation Studies (, whose data is released under the Creative Commons Attribution license.
