Lex-Helpers

Functions for calculating Open Vocabulary lexical statistics.

Quick Start

See lexFrequencyPipeline API documentation below. Also see index.test.js for a recreation of the WWBP example.

// import your lexicon data as a JSON object (i.e., Record<string, number>)
import lexicon from "./lexicon.json" with { type: "json" }; // example

// import the lexFrequencyPipeline function from this module
import { lexFrequencyPipeline } from "lex-helpers";

// define your intercept
const intercept = 10.523; // example

// create your custom pipeline
const pipeline = lexFrequencyPipeline(lexicon, intercept);

// get some tokens
const doc1Tokens = ["the", "cat", "sat", "on", "the", "mat"]; // example
const doc2Tokens = ["the", "dog", "sat", "on", "the", "hat"]; // example

// run the pipeline
const doc1result = pipeline(doc1tokens); // {number}
const doc2result = pipeline(doc2tokens); // {number}

API

correctFloat

Corrects IEEE 754 floating point errors using toFixed.

Example:

import { correctFloat } from "lex-helpers";
const initial = 0.1 + 0.2; // 0.30000000000000004
const corrected = correctFloat(initial); // 0.3

getFrequencies

Get the frequencies of tokens in a corpus.

Example:

import { getFrequencies } from "lex-helpers";
const tokens = ["the", "cat", "sat", "on", "the", "mat"];
const frequencies = getFrequencies(tokens); // Map<{ the: 2, cat: 1, sat: 1, on: 1, mat: 1 }>

getWeightedRelativeFrequencies

Get the weighted relative frequencies of tokens in a corpus.

Example:

import { getWeightedRelativeFrequencies } from "lex-helpers";
const lexicon = { the: -93, cat: 100, sat: 50, on: -10, mat: 5 };
const frequencies = { the: 2, cat: 1, sat: 1, on: 1, mat: 1 };
const weightedRelativeFrequencies = getWeightedRelativeFrequencies(
  lexicon,
  frequencies,
); // IterableIterator<[string, number]>

getLexiconValue

Get the final value of a token in a corpus.

Example:

import { getLexiconValue } from "lex-helpers";
const weightedRelativeFrequencies = {
  the: 0.4,
  cat: 0.1,
  sat: 0.1,
  on: 0.1,
  mat: 0.1,
};
const intercept = 10.523;
const lexiconValue = getLexiconValue(weightedRelativeFrequencies, intercept); // {number}

lexFrequencyPipeline

Create a custom pipeline for calculating lexical statistics.

N.B. This is provided for simple use cases. For larger datasets it is recommended that you create your own pipeline using the functions provided in this module.

The pipeline is getFrequencies -> getWeightedRelativeFrequencies -> getLexiconValue -> correctFloat

Example:

import { lexFrequencyPipeline } from "lex-helpers";
const lexicon = { the: 0.2, cat: 0.1, sat: 0.1, on: 0.1, mat: 0.1 };
const intercept = 10.523;
const pipeline = lexFrequencyPipeline(lexicon, intercept);
const tokens = ["the", "cat", "sat", "on", "the", "mat"];
const result = pipeline(tokens); // 12.523

lexBinPipeline

The same as lexFrequencyPipeline but getFrequencies simply counts a token as present (1) or absent (0), instead of the token's frequency.

sumValues

Sum and correct the values of an object.

Example:

import { sumValues } from "lex-helpers";
const values = [{ value: 0.1 }, { value: 0.2 }, { value: 0.3 }];
const sum = sumValues(values); // 0.6
