Stanford Lemmatizer

StreamableKNIME Textprocessing Plug-in version 4.3.0.v202011212014 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

Lemmatizes terms contained in the input documents with the Stanford Core NLP library. For details about the Stanford Core NLP library, please check here.

This node returns the lemma of a term by removing inflections, e.g in case of plurals, pronoun case, and verb endings. The lemma is based heavily on the Part-Of-Speech (POS) tag of a term, so either the Stanford tagger node or the POS tagger node has to be applied before using the Lemmatizer. If more than one POS tag is found for one term, only the first one will be taken into consideration. Moreover, terms with no POS tag will be skipped by default.

Currently only english language is supported by this node.


Lemmatizer options

Node should fail when terms with no POS tag are found
If checked, the node will fail when at least one term has no POS tag. Otherwise, all terms that have no POS tag will simply be skipped.
