Python library for manipulating semantic data in linguistics

Project description

PySem: Pysen library for handling semantic data in linguistics

  • Current Version: 0.8
  • Concepticon Version: 3.2.0

Usage Examples

Retrieve the sense data assembled by S. A. Starostin in the STARLING software package and search for similar words:

>>> from pysem.sense import Sense
>>> sns = Sense()
>>> sns.similar('arm')
[['arm', 'calf of leg', 'sense-bone; sense-foot; sense-hand', 3],
 ['arm', 'hand', 'sense-bone; sense-foot; sense-hand', 3],
 ['arm', 'shin-bone', 'sense-bone; sense-foot; sense-hand', 3],
 ['arm', 'ankle', 'sense-bone; sense-foot', 2],
 ['arm', 'bone', 'sense-bone; sense-foot', 2]]

Map data to the most recent version of the Concepticon project:

>>> from pysem import to_concepticon
>>> to_concepticon([{"gloss": "Fuß", pos: "noun"}], language="de"}])
{'Fuß': [['1301', 'FOOT', 'noun', 19]]}
