Stop Words Cleaner for Zulu


This model removes ‘stop words’ from text. Stop words are words so common that they can removed without significantly altering the meaning of a text. Removing stop words is useful when one wants to deal with only the most semantically important words in a text, and ignore words that are rarely semantically relevant, such as articles and prepositions.

How to use

stop_words = StopWordsCleaner.pretrained("stopwords_zu", "zu") \
        .setInputCols(["token"]) \
nlp_pipeline = Pipeline(stages=[document_assembler, tokenizer, stop_words])
light_pipeline = LightPipeline([['']]).toDF("text")))
results = light_pipeline.fullAnnotate("Ngaphandle kokuba yinkosi yasenyakatho, uJohn Snow ungudokotela waseNgilandi futhi ungumholi ekwenziweni kwe-anesthesia kanye nenhlanzeko yezokwelapha.")

val stopWords = StopWordsCleaner.pretrained("stopwords_zu", "zu")
