Apache OpenNLP based chunk annotators

Generate an annotator which computes chunk annotations using the Apache OpenNLP Maxent chunker.

Usage
Maxent_Chunk_Annotator(language = "en", probs = FALSE, model = NULL)
Arguments
language
a character string giving the ISO-639 code of the language being processed by the annotator.
probs
a logical indicating whether the computed annotations should provide the token probabilities obtained from the Maxent model as their ‘chunk_prob’ feature.
model
a character string giving the path to the Maxent model file to be used, or NULL indicating to use a default model file for the given language (if available, see Details).
Details

See http://opennlp.sourceforge.net/models-1.5/ for available model files. These can conveniently be made available to R by installing the respective openNLPmodels.language package from the repository at http://datacube.wu.ac.at.

Value

An Annotator object giving the generated chunk annotator.
