Hebrew Lemmatizer


This model uses context and language knowledge to assign all forms and inflections of a word to a single root. This enables the pipeline to treat the past and present tense of a verb, for example, as the same word instead of two completely different words. The lemmatizer takes into consideration the context surrounding a word to determine which root is correct when the word form alone is ambiguous.

How to use

Use as part of a pipeline after tokenisation.

lemmatizer = LemmatizerModel.pretrained("lemma", "he") \
        .setInputCols(["token"]) \
nlp_pipeline = Pipeline(stages=[document_assembler, tokenizer, lemmatizer])
light_pipeline = LightPipeline(nlp_pipeline.fit(spark.createDataFrame([[""]]).toDF("text")))
results = light_pipeline.fullAnnotate(["""להגיש	הגישה	הגיש	הגשתי	יגיש	מגישים	הגישו	תגיש	הגשנו	מגישה"""])

val lemmatizer = LemmatizerModel.pretrained("lemma", "he")
val pipeline = new Pipeline().setStages(Array(document_assembler, tokenizer, lemmatizer))
val result = pipeline.fit(Seq.empty["להגיש	הגישה	הגיש	הגשתי	יגיש	מגישים	הגישו	תגיש	הגשנו	מגישה"].toDS.toDF("text")).transform(data)
import nlu

text = ["""להגיש	הגישה	הגיש	הגשתי	יגיש	מגישים	הגישו	תגיש	הגשנו	מגישה"""]
lemma_df = nlu.load('he.lemma').predict(text, output_level='document')
