Contribute to NLTK

The Natural Language Toolkit exists thanks to the efforts of dozens of voluntary developers who have contributed functionality and bugfixes since the project began in 2000 (contributors).

In 2015 we are especially keen to improve NLTK coverage for: dependency parsing, machine translation, sentiment analysis, twitter processing.

New material in these areas will be covered in the second edition of the NLTK book, anticipated in early 2016.
