spaCy lookups data
This repository contains additional data files to be used with
spaCy v2.2+. When it's installed in the same environment as
spaCy, this package makes the resources for each language available as an entry
point, which spaCy checks when setting up the

Why does this exist?
The main purpose of this package is to make the default spaCy installation
smaller and not force every user to download large data files for all
languages by default. Lookups data is now either provided via the pre-trained
models (which serialize out their vocabulary and lookup tables) or by
explicitly installing this package or
When should I install this?
You should install this package if you want to use lemmatization for languages that don't yet have a pretrained model available for download and don't rely on third-party libraries for lemmatization – for example, Turkish, Swedish or Croatian (see data files).
If you are training new models with spaCy, you should probably install this,
since it contains lemmatization and normalization data for 25+ languages that
is no longer included as part of the main spaCy library. In particular, you
should install it if you're creating a blank model and you want it to
include lemmatization and normalization data. Once you've saved out the model
nlp.disk), it will include the lookup tables as part of its
Is this package only for lemmatization?
This package used to only be for lemmatization, but it has been extended to include normalization data for many languages. As of v0.3.1 it also includes optional probability and Brown cluster data that used to be distributed with provided models in spaCy v2.2 but is no longer included in spaCy v2.3. In the future it may include other lookup lists and tables as well, e.g. large tokenizer exception files.
This package now also includes all data-specific tests. The test suite depends on spaCy.
pip install -r requirements.txt python -m pytest spacy_lookups_data
If you've installed the package in your spaCy environment, you can also run the tests like this:
python -m pytest --pyargs spacy_lookups_data
