abydos package


Abydos NLP/IR library by Christopher C. Little

There are nine major packages that make up Abydos:

  • compression for string compression classes

  • corpus for document corpus classes

  • distance for string distance measure & metric classes

  • fingerprint for string fingerprint classes

  • phones for functions relating to phones and phonemes

  • phonetic for phonetic algorithm classes

  • stats for statistical functions and a confusion table class

  • stemmer for stemming classes

  • tokenizer for tokenizer classes

Classes with each package have consistent method names, as discussed below. A tenth package, util, contains functions not intended for end-user use.
