    # Conda
    conda env create -f environment.yml
  2. Download all the data and version 0.17.1 of Zemberek distribution from the official Zemberek Drive folder and put the files in the corresponding folders:

    +-- bin
    |   +-- zemberek-full.jar
    +-- data
    |   +-- classification
    |       +-- news-title-category-set
    |       +-- news-title-category-set.lemmas
    |       +-- news-title-category-set.tokenized
    |   +-- dictionaries
    |   +-- lm
    |       +-- lm.2gram.slm
    |   +-- ner
    |   +-- normalization
    |       +-- ascii-map
    |       +-- lookup-from-graph
    |       +-- split
    +-- examples


  1. cd to the directory of your desired example.
  2. Run the example via python.

Known Bugs

  • During the model training, fastText will print errors. It still works, just ignore them. If you run the code the second time, model training will be skipped and the console output will be clean of errors.
