NAME ^

Lingua::FreeLing3::Word - Interface to FreeLing3 Word object

SYNOPSIS ^

   use Lingua::FreeLing3::Word;

   my $empty_word = Lingua::FreeLing3::Word->new;
   my $hello_word = Lingua::FreeLing3::Word->new('hello');

DESCRIPTION ^

Interface to the FreeLing3 word object.

new

The new constructor returns a new Lingua::FreeLing3::Word object. If a parameter is passed, it is interpreted as the word form, and it is automatically set. Otherwise, an empty word object is returned.

as_hash

Returns a reference to a hash with the form, lemma and tag (POS) of the word.

lemma

Returns the word lemma, if set. Note that this value can't be set directly. You can create word analysis, associate them to the word, and then select the desired analysis (setting up the lemma value).

  my $word_lemma = $word->lemma;

tag

Returns the word tag (POS), if set. Again, note that this value can't be set directly. You can create word analysis, associate them to the word, and then select the desired analysis (setting up the tag value).

  my $word_pos = $word->tag;

analysis

Returns a list of possible analysis. You can pass an extra option FeatureStructure to obtain the analysis as a list of hashes (list of feature structures), instead of Lingua::FreeLing3::Word::Analysis objects.

  my $list = $word->analysis(FeatureStructure => 1);

TODO: it is missing the option to add an analysis, or set the full set at once.

form

Set/retrieve word form.

   my $word_form = $word->form;

lc_form

Retrieve lowercase word form.

   my $lc_form = $word->lc_form;

is_multiword

Returns a true value is the word is a multiword.

get_mw_words

For a multiword word, this method returns an array of its constituent words in array context. In scalar context returns the multiword as a string (words concatenated by a whitespace).

Returns undef if word is not a multiword.

TODO ^

There are a lot of methods to interface with the Word object that are currently not implemented. They should be made available as soon as there is time.
