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 historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
