NLTK: a natural language processing toolkit in Python

October 11th, 2008

NLTK looks very useful.

“NLTK — the Natural Language Toolkit — is a suite of open source Python modules, data and documentation for research and development in natural language processing. NLTK contains Code supporting dozens of NLP tasks, along with 40 popular Corpora and extensive Documentation including a 375-page online Book. Distributions for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux are available.”

The development of NLTK is led by Steven Bird, Edward Loper, and Ewan Klein.
