nltk.corpus.reader.mte module

A reader for corpora whose documents are in MTE format.

nltk.corpus.reader.mte.xpath(root, path, ns)[source]
class nltk.corpus.reader.mte.MTECorpusView[source]

Bases: nltk.corpus.reader.xmldocs.XMLCorpusView

Class for lazy viewing the MTE Corpus.

__init__(fileid, tagspec, elt_handler=None)[source]

Create a new corpus view based on a specified XML file.

Note that the XMLCorpusView constructor does not take an encoding argument, because the unicode encoding is specified by the XML files themselves.

Parameters
  • tagspec (str) – A tag specification, indicating what XML elements should be included in the view. Each non-nested element that matches this specification corresponds to one item in the view.

  • elt_handler

    A function used to transform each element to a value for the view. If no handler is specified, then self.handle_elt() is called, which returns the element as an ElementTree object. The signature of elt_handler is:

    elt_handler(elt, tagspec) -> value
    

read_block(stream, tagspec=None, elt_handler=None)[source]

Read from stream until we find at least one element that matches tagspec, and return the result of applying elt_handler to each element found.

class nltk.corpus.reader.mte.MTEFileReader[source]

Bases: object

Class for loading the content of the multext-east corpus. It parses the xml files and does some tag-filtering depending on the given method parameters.

ns = {'tei': 'https://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0', 'xml': 'https://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace'}
tag_ns = '{https://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0}'

sent_path = 'TEI/text/body/div/div/p/s'
para_path = 'TEI/text/body/div/div/p'

class nltk.corpus.reader.mte.MTETagConverter[source]

Bases: object

Class for converting msd tags to universal tags, more conversion options are currently not implemented.

mapping_msd_universal = {'-': 'X', '.': '.', 'A': 'ADJ', 'C': 'CONJ', 'D': 'DET', 'M': 'NUM', 'N': 'NOUN', 'P': 'PRON', 'Q': 'PRT', 'R': 'ADV', 'S': 'ADP', 'V': 'VERB'}
static msd_to_universal(tag)[source]

This function converts the annotation from the Multex-East to the universal tagset as described in Chapter 5 of the NLTK-Book

Unknown Tags will be mapped to X. Punctuation marks are not supported in MSD tags, so

class nltk.corpus.reader.mte.MTECorpusReader[source]

Bases: nltk.corpus.reader.tagged.TaggedCorpusReader

Reader for corpora following the TEI-p5 xml scheme, such as MULTEXT-East. MULTEXT-East contains part-of-speech-tagged words with a quite precise tagging scheme. These tags can be converted to the Universal tagset

__init__(root=None, fileids=None, encoding='utf8')[source]

Construct a new MTECorpusreader for a set of documents located at the given root directory. Example usage:

>>> root = '/...path to corpus.../'
>>> reader = MTECorpusReader(root, 'oana-*.xml', 'utf8') 
Parameters
  • root – The root directory for this corpus. (default points to location in multext config file)

  • fileids – A list or regexp specifying the fileids in this corpus. (default is oana-en.xml)

  • encoding – The encoding of the given files (default is utf8)

words(fileids=None)[source]
Parameters

fileids – A list specifying the fileids that should be used.

Returns

the given file(s) as a list of words and punctuation symbols.

Return type

list(str)

sents(fileids=None)[source]
Parameters

fileids – A list specifying the fileids that should be used.

Returns

the given file(s) as a list of sentences or utterances, each encoded as a list of word strings

list(list(str))

paras(fileids=None)[source]
Parameters

fileids – A list specifying the fileids that should be used.

Returns

the given file(s) as a list of paragraphs, each encoded as a list of sentences, which are in turn encoded as lists of word string

Return type

list(list(list(str)))

lemma_words(fileids=None)[source]
Parameters

fileids – A list specifying the fileids that should be used.

Returns

the given file(s) as a list of words, the corresponding lemmas and punctuation symbols, encoded as tuples (word, lemma)

Return type

list(tuple(str,str))

tagged_words(fileids=None, tagset='msd', tags='')[source]
Parameters

Returns

the given file(s) as a list of tagged words and punctuation symbols encoded as tuples (word, tag)

Return type

list(tuple(str, str))

lemma_sents(fileids=None)[source]
Parameters

fileids – A list specifying the fileids that should be used.

Returns

the given file(s) as a list of sentences or utterances, each encoded as a list of tuples of the word and the corresponding lemma (word, lemma)

Return type

list(list(tuple(str, str)))
