The service provides web access to the MeCab language analysis tool, which breaks down Japanese texts into parts of speech and other morphological elements. It seeks to analyze a text passage based on a general-purpose dictionary and reference collection to reveal structure and word use embedded in the sample. It builds on a Markov model of word sequence, but attempts to improve analytical performance by introducing randomized elements. An open-source installed version is available.
API methods support submission of a Japanese-language text passage (assumed to be a complete sentence) with filters to select only nouns or only unique words. Methods return analysis and breakdown of the passage according to its word choice, parts of speech, implied inflection, and related characteristics.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
