npm install nlp-corpus
nlp-corpus is a proud series of weird texts from a delicious smattering of sources - aimed at getting cosmopolitan flavours of english - highbrow, lowbrow and unibrow - dialects, typos, shakespeare, unicode, 19th century, aggressive emoji, and epic nsfw slurs into your training data.
it is 50,000 sentences, or 5mb, split into 50 files of randomized sentences.
it's role is mainly to kick the tires a bit, as creatively as possible, for fuzzy linguistic parsing.
- suggestive American rock lyrics
- campy Friends tv-show transcripts
- vulnerable drug-trip reports from Erowid
- singaporean SMS messages
- State of the union logorrhea
- generally-offensive 90's rap
- Legal descriptions in NAFTA
- 20th century romantic fiction
- pedantic arguments on reddit
- arcane and dense jeopardy questions
Note that some of this text is nsfw, or containing offensive content, badly-formatted unicode, weird indentation, ascii art, antiquated shorthands, etc.
These texts were found just clicking around on the internet. Running them blindly through your parser should be considered fair-use, but please don't commercially republish them, or anything like that.
npm install nlp-corpus
running this library server-side loads a subset of the documents - abt 3mb total
const corpus = require('nlp-corpus') //random sentence let str = corpus() //random 5 sentences let arr = corpus(5) //n can only be <= 1,500
or on the client-side, there's a one-liner that fetches the docs:
<script src="http://unpkg.com/nlp-corpus"></script> <script> // load a documents lazily await nlpCorpus.fetchDoc(2) //1 - 20 // (each doc is abt 150kb) let arr = nlpCorpus.random(4) //1 - 1,500 </script>
the corpus is availble as [./builds](50 150kb files) where each file is 2,000 mixed sentences.
This is a good size for picking-at from the client-side - but you can loop through them all in nodejs.
in total, there are 100,000 sentences, at around 7.5mb.
