Project Description

.. image::

Udon is a text normalizer for lengthened English expression having repeating letters.

(e.g., Udon converts "cooooooooooooooollllllllllllll" to "cool")

This module is based on the following paper:

Samuel Brody and Nicholas Diakopoulos.
Cooooooooooooooollllllllllllll!!!!!!!!!!!!!! using word lengthening to detect sentiment in microblogs.
In EMNLP2011, pp. 562-570, 2011.



$ pip install udon


Import udon


>>> import udon

Normalize sentence


>>> udon.normalize_sentence('you are coooolll!!!')
you are cool!

- normalize_sentence(str)

Normalize sentence


>>> udon.normalize_word('okayyyyy')

- normalize_word(str)

Shorten repeated substring until threshould without dictionary


>>> udon.cut_repeat('mamisaaaaaan', 1)
>>> udon.cut_repeat('okayyyyy', 2)

- cut_repeat(str, threshould)

* Note that this method don't use a lengthened expression normalize table (e.g., cooll -> cool).
If you want to normalize such expression, use `normalize_word()` or `normalize_sentence()` method.

* Support Japanese lengthened expressions

Contributions are welcome!
