Fun with python NTLK
This project is simply designed to house some fun things that I've done with NLTK. Most of this is based off of the examples found in the very great Natural Language Processing with Python
To get started, you'll need to install NLTK You might also want to install simple corpa to test these scripts.
Generation of text in a given style
You can use the "PhraseGenerator" to generate text following a given style. For example you can generate phrases that are similar to the style used by Obama in his Inaugural speach in 2009:
>>> import nltk >>> from generator import PhraseGenerator >>> gen = PhraseGenerator(nltk.corpus.inaugural, '2009-Obama.txt')
To start a phrase with "I", simply run:
which might give you something like:
I thank you to those leaders around the answer is too costly; that finally decides our nation, but because of every end to the question we ask today.
