Collection of types for natural language

Latest on Hackage:

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

Build Status


Here we collect assorted types for linguistics and basic operations on those. We also provide some connectivity with other approaches in different languages. To this end, newtypes for types in LingPy are available:

The BTI module provides an internalized Text type to speed up algorithms on short strings. This includes word and text alignments. BTI values can be unboxed.
