rnltk Logo

rnltk is a natural language tool kit for R. It is inspired by Python's NLTK porting and extending much of Python's functionality with some R flavor. The packages/functions that are included are designed to be more intuitive wrappers or optimized for performance. Currently, the package calls the following packages maintained by me:

  1. entity
  2. formality
  3. gofastr
  4. hclustext
  5. lexr
  6. parsent
  7. qdapRegex
  8. readability
  9. sentimentr
  10. stansent
  11. syllable
  12. tagger
  13. termco
  14. textproj
  15. textreadr
  16. textreport
  17. textshape

There are plans to add to this list including outside packages, focusing particularly on machine learning/classification packages. Please suggest packages and features with rationale as to how/why it would be important to include the request in a natural language tool kit.

To see all of the available packages and functions use the available() function.

Additionally, I plan to replicate and extend much of the Natural Language Processing with Python book (Bird, Klein, & Loper, 2009) with equivalent rnltk code.
