Turkish Deasciifier

This tool is used to turn Turkish text written in ASCII characters, which do not include some letters of the Turkish alphabet, into correctly written text with the appropriate Turkish characters (such as ı, ş, and so forth). It can also do the opposite, turning Turkish input into ASCII text, for the purpose of processing.

Detailed Description

Using Asciifier

Asciifier converts text to a format containing only ASCII letters. This can be instantiated and used as follows:

  Asciifier asciifier = SimpleAsciifier()
  Sentence sentence = Sentence("çocuk"")
  Sentence asciified = asciifier.asciify(sentence)



Using Deasciifier

Deasciifier converts text written with only ASCII letters to its correct form using corresponding letters in Turkish alphabet. There are two types of Deasciifier:

  • SimpleDeasciifier

    The instantiation can be done as follows:

      let fsm = FsmMorphologicalAnalyzer()
      let deasciifier = SimpleDeasciifier(fsm)
  • NGramDeasciifier

    • To create an instance of this, both a FsmMorphologicalAnalyzer and a NGram is required.

    • FsmMorphologicalAnalyzer can be instantiated as follows:

        let fsm = FsmMorphologicalAnalyzer()
    • NGram can be either trained from scratch or loaded from an existing model.

      • Training from scratch:

          let corpus = Corpus("corpus.txt"); 
          let ngram = NGram(corpus.getAllWordsAsArrayList(), 1)

      There are many smoothing methods available. For other smoothing methods, check here.

      • Loading from an existing model:

              let ngram = NGram("ngram.txt")

    For further details, please check here.

    • Afterwards, NGramDeasciifier can be created as below:

        let deasciifier = NGramDeasciifier(fsm, ngram)

A text can be deasciified as follows:

Sentence sentence = Sentence("cocuk")
Sentence deasciified = deasciifier.deasciify(sentence)
