TextBlob: Simplified Text Processing
TextBlob is a Python (2 and 3) library for processing textual data. It provides a simple API for diving into common natural language processing (NLP) tasks such as part-of-speech tagging, noun phrase extraction, sentiment analysis, classification, translation, and more.
from textblob import TextBlob text = ''' The titular threat of The Blob has always struck me as the ultimate movie monster: an insatiably hungry, amoeba-like mass able to penetrate virtually any safeguard, capable of--as a doomed doctor chillingly describes it--"assimilating flesh on contact. Snide comparisons to gelatin be damned, it's a concept with the most devastating of potential consequences, not unlike the grey goo scenario proposed by technological theorists fearful of artificial intelligence run rampant. ''' blob = TextBlob(text) blob.tags # [('The', 'DT'), ('titular', 'JJ'), # ('threat', 'NN'), ('of', 'IN'), ...] blob.noun_phrases # WordList(['titular threat', 'blob', # 'ultimate movie monster', # 'amoeba-like mass', ...]) for sentence in blob.sentences: print(sentence.sentiment.polarity) # 0.060 # -0.341 blob.translate(to="es") # 'La amenaza titular de The Blob...'
