A simple lemmatizer based on Unitex word lists

Project description

This is a simple module for lemmatization based on the Unitex inflected word list. As such, it needs a Unitex vocabulary file in order to work properly.

So far, I’ve only worked with Portuguese, with the DELAF_PB file provided by NILC.


You can either clone the repository and install with

$ python install

or install through pip

$ pip install unitexlemmatizer


In order to use the Unitex Lemmatizer, you need to tell it where the word list is:

>>> import unitexlemmatizer as ul
>>> ul.load_unitex_dictionary('/path/to/delaf.dic')

Then, you can call the get_lemma function passing the inflected word and its part of speech tag (from the Universal Dependencies tagset).

>>> ul.get_lemma('corpora', 'noun')
