Python Programming can be used to process text data for the requirements in various textual data analysis. A very important area of application of such text processing ability of python is for NLP (Natural Language Processing). NLP is used in search engines, newspaper feed analysis and more recently for voice -based applications like Siri and Alexa. Python's Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) is a group of libraries that can be used for creating such Text Processing systems.
This tutorial is designed for Computer Science graduates as well as Software Professionals who are willing to learn Text Processing in simple and easy steps using Python as a programming language.
Before proceeding with this tutorial, you should have a basic knowledge of writing code in Python programming language, using any python IDE and execution of Python programs. If you are completely new to python then please refer our Python tutorial to get a sound understanding of the language.
