FreeLing is a library providing language analysis services (such as morfological analysis, date recognition, PoS tagging, etc.). Version 3.0 provides language identification, tokenizing, sentence splitting, morphological analysis, text-to-phonetics transcription, NE detection and classification, recognition of dates/numbers/physical magnitudes/currency/ratios, PoS tagging, shallow parsing, dependency parsing, WN-based sense annotation, and word sense disambiguation.
FreeLing is designed to be used as an external library from any application requiring this kind of services. In addition to native C++, APIs are provided for Java, Perl, and Python. A simple main program is also provided as a basic interface to the library, which enables the user to analyze text files from the command line.
