We're on the cheeseshop! Yay!

pip install pyborg

If you want the latest git via pip you'll need some special sauce.

pip install -e git+\&subdirectory=pyborg

Note that we're using Python 3.6+ (for fancy type declarations) and 2.7 (for now)

Basic Usage

pyborg is our new unified pyborg command line interface.


Docs can be found on RTD.


Pyborg is skipping version 1.3; this was used for a transitory database/"brain" restructuring that was underwhelming.

Ancient original tarballs were hosted at Gna! which is now gone. Thankfully Internet Archive has a copy!

Pyborg was originally developed by Tom Morton and Sébastien Dailly.

Suggested NLTK data

Pyborg can use nltk tagging and tokenizing when installed and configured. Tagging requires averaged_perceptron_tagger and tokenization requires punkt.


  • spelling or better heuristics
  • graphing and visualization of the database
