Linguistic Analysis API

Simplify complex language concepts and parse text with the Linguistic Analysis API.

Explore the structure of your text

You know what your users are saying, but do you know what it means? The Linguistic API uses advanced linguistic analysis tools for natural language processing, giving you access to part-of-speech tagging and parsing. These tools allow you to hone in on important concepts and actions.

The API can tap into traditional linguistic analysis tools which allow you to identify the concepts and actions in your text with part-of-speech tagging and find phrases and concepts using natural language parsers. Whether you are mining customer feedback, interpreting user commands or consuming web text, understanding the structure of the text is a critical first step.

Sentence separation and tokenisation

Given a body of text, one of the first steps in analysis is to break it into sentences and tokens.

Part-of-speech tagging

Once your text is split into tokens, you can find the nouns (entities, persons, places, things, etc.), verbs (actions, changes of state) and more using part-of-speech tagging.

Constituency parsing

Determine the internal structure and meaning of a sentence (entities, purpose, etc.) by breaking it into labelled phrases. This helps you understand who is doing what to whom.
