Spacy Syllables

Multilingual syllable annotations

Spacy Syllables is a pipeline component that adds multilingual syllable annotations to Tokens. It uses Pyphen under the hood and has support for a long list of languages.


import spacy from spacy_syllables import SpacySyllables nlp = spacy.load('en_core_web_sm') syllables = SpacySyllables(nlp) nlp.add_pipe(syllables, after='tagger') doc = nlp('terribly long') data = [ (token.text, token._.syllables, token._.syllables_count) for token in doc ] assert data == [ ('terribly', ['ter', 'ri', 'bly'], 3), ('long', ['long'], 1) ]
