Help free TextBlob from Anglocentrism by contributing a language extension!

For instructions on how to do so, check out the development docs: http://textblob.readthedocs.org/en/dev/contributing.html#language-extensions

I've begun textblob-fr, but it would be nice if it had another maintainer (preferably one who knows French and/or has experience with NLP in French). For now, you can use textblob-fr as a template for other language extensions.

If you write more on what this would involve, I'd be interested in handling the Turkish extensions.

That would be excellent! I've added more info in the issue description

A tutorial on how to do this would be great. This is all the guidance we have right now (from the link above): "The process for developing language extensions is the same as developing model extensions. Create your part-of-speech taggers, tokenizers, parsers, etc. in the language of your choice."
