tCorpus$fold_rsyntax {corpustools}R Documentation

Fold rsyntax annotations

Description

If a tCorpus has rsyntax annotations (see annotate_rsyntax), it can be convenient to aggregate tokens that have a certain semantic label. For example, if you have a query for labeling "source" and "quote", you can add an aggegated value for the sources (such as a unique ID) as a column, and then remove the quote tokens.

Arguments

annotation

The name of an rsyntax annotation column

by_label

The labels in this column for which you want to aggregate the tokens

...

Specify the new aggregated columns in name-value pairs. The name is the name of the new column, and the value should be a function over a column in $tokens. For example: subject = paste(token, collapse = ' ') would create the column 'subject', of which the values are the concatenated tokens. See examples for more.

txt

If TRUE, add _txt column with concatenated tokens for by_label

rm_by

If TRUE (default), remove the column(s) specified in by_label

copy

If TRUE, return a copy of the transformed tCorpus, instead of transforming the tCorpus by reference

Details

Usage:

## R6 method for class tCorpus. Use as tc$method (where tc is a tCorpus object).

             to_label=NULL, rm_by=T, copy=F)

Examples

tc$udpipe_clauses()

tc$fold_rsyntax('clause', by_label = 'subject', subject = paste(token, collapse=' '))
tc$tokens
