python3-snowballstemmer

Pure Python Snowball stemming library

Description

Snowball provides access to efficient algorithms for calculating a "stemmed" form of a word. This is a form with most of the common morphological endings removed; hopefully representing a common linguistic base form. This is most useful in building search engines and information retrieval software; for example, a search with stemming enabled should be able to find a document containing "cycling" given the query "cycles".

Snowball provides algorithms for several (mainly European) languages. It also provides access to the classic Porter stemming algorithm for English: although this has been superseded by an improved algorithm, the original algorithm may be of interest to information retrieval researchers wishing to reproduce results of earlier experiments.

This package contains the pure Python module that implements Snowball algorithms. When python3-stemmer package (which contains the C extension) is installed, it uses that extension instead of the pure Python code.
