snowball: Bindings to the Snowball library.

[ bsd3, library, natural-language-processing, text ] [ Propose Tags ]

The Snowball library is used to compute the stems of words in natural languages.

Compared to the older stemmer package, this one:

  • Correctly handles unicode without relying on the system locale

  • Takes greater care to avoid memory leaks and to be thread safe

  • Uses Text rather than String

  • Gets rid of the need for stemWords by using rewrite rules to make map stem efficient

  • Includes a more recent release of Snowball

  • Attempts to comply with the Snowball licensing terms

  • Supports SafeHaskell when available and is otherwise Haskell2010

  • Comes with a test suite

However, although this code is written from scratch, it is heavily modeled after the code of the "stemmer" package.
