English Lexicon
Extensible English language lexicon for POS tagging with Emojis and around 110K words

Installation

``` npm install en-lexicon --save ```

Usage

```javascript const lexicon = require("en-lexicon"); console.log(lexicon.lexicon.faraway); // "JJ" // multiple POS tags are separated by "|" console.log(lexicon.lexicon.acquired); // "VBN|JJ|VBD" ```

Extending

One of the main reason that I had to write my own lexicon module is that I needed it to be extensible. To extend the lexion with medical terms for example: ```javascript const lexicon = require("en-lexicon"); lexicon.extend({
lactate:"VB",
serum:"NN"
}); // Now that you've extended the lexicon with your own terms // you won't only get the terms you entered // The lexicon will (try) to be smart and // apply some inflections on those terms // the term you entered console.log(lexicon.lexicon.lactate); // "VB" console.log(lexicon.lexicon.lactated); // "VBD|VBN" console.log(lexicon.lexicon.lactating); // "VBG" ```

Credits

I've used Eric Brill's lexicon as starting point for this project, manually corrected some cases, and expanded it using various corpora, this one and this one for example.
