What is Lemma in WordNet?
Also know, what is Lemma in NLTK?
A lemma (plural lemmas or lemmata) is the canonical form, dictionary form, or citation form of a set of words. For example, runs, running, ran are all forms of the word run, therefore run is the lemma of all these words. Python NLTK provides WordNet Lemmatizer that uses the WordNet Database to lookup lemmas of words.
Similarly, what is a Synset in WordNet? WordNet is the lexical database i.e. dictionary for the English language, specifically designed for natural language processing. Synset is a special kind of a simple interface that is present in NLTK to look up words in WordNet. Synset instances are the groupings of synonymous words that express the same concept.
Besides, what do you mean by Lemma?
In mathematics, a lemma (plural lemmas or lemmata) is a generally minor, proven proposition which is used as a stepping stone to a larger result. The word "lemma" derives from the Ancient Greek λ?μμα ("anything which is received", such as a gift, profit, or a bribe).
How do you use WordNet in Python?
The WordNet is a part of Python's Natural Language Toolkit. It is a large word database of English Nouns, Adjectives, Adverbs and Verbs. These are grouped into some set of cognitive synonyms, which are called synsets. To use the Wordnet, at first we have to install the NLTK module, then download the WordNet package.
