FoLiA Library for Python
This Python module provides an extensive library for parsing, creating and otherwise processing documents in the Format for Linguistic Annotation, aka FoLiA. It has been in active development since 2010 and used by numerous Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools.
This library used to be part of PyNLPL (
pynlpl.formats.folia), but is now
in the process of migration to its own (i.e. this) project.
FoLiA development is funded in the scope of the larger CLARIN-NL project and its successor CLARIAH.
The following modules are available:
folia.main- The main library
folia.setdefinition- A module for FoLiA Set Definitions
folia.fql- Support for the FoLiA Query Language (FQL)
