jWordSplitter 3.5-dev (2012-xx-yy) Copyright 2004-2007 Sven Abels Copyright 2007-2013 Daniel Naber See LICENSE.txt for license information. Homepage: http://www.danielnaber.de/jwordsplitter This Java library can split German words into their smallest parts (atoms). For example "Erhebungsfehler" will be split into "erhebung" and "fehler". This is especially beneficial for German words but it can work with all languages, as long as a dictionary and a class extending AbstractWordSplitter is provided. So far, only German is supported and a German dictionary is included in the JAR. To split a list of words (one word per line), use this command: java -jar jwordsplitter-x.y.jar <filename> To export the German dictionary from the JAR file, use this command: java -cp jwordsplitter-x.y.jar de.danielnaber.jwordsplitter.converter.ExportDict /de/danielnaber/jwordsplitter/wordsGerman.ser To serialize a text dictionary (one word per line) to a binary format so it can be used by jWordSplitter, use this command: java -cp jwordsplitter-x.y.jar de.danielnaber.jwordsplitter.converter.SerializeDict textDict textDict.ser TODO: -keep the plain text dict in git, not the binary one; build binary only for release -build the dictionary from Morphy data -extend list of exceptions (exceptionsGerman.txt, GermanInterfixDisambiguator.java) -API: return null if a word isn't known at all, return the word itself if it is not a compound?
