class cltk.alphabet.grc.beta_to_unicode.BetaCodeReplacer(pattern1=None, pattern2=None, pattern3=None)[source]

Bases: object

Replace Beta Code with Unicode.

>>> from cltk.alphabet.grc.beta_to_unicode import BetaCodeReplacer
>>> beta_code_replace = BetaCodeReplacer()
>>> beta_code_str = "O(/PWS OU)=N MH\ TAU)TO\ "
>>> beta_code_replace.replace_beta_code(beta_code_str)
'ὅπως οὖν μὴ ταὐτὸ '
>>> beta_code_str = "PROU+POTETAGME/NWN"
>>> beta_code_replace.replace_beta_code(beta_code_str)

Replace method. Note: regex.subn() returns a tuple (new_string, number_of_subs_made).

>>> from cltk.alphabet.grc.beta_to_unicode import BetaCodeReplacer
>>> beta_code_replace = BetaCodeReplacer()
>>> beta_code_str = r"*XALDAI+KH\N"  # extra slash in ``\N`` only here for doctest
>>> beta_code_replace.replace_beta_code(beta_code_str)
>>> beta_code_str = "proi+sxome/nwn"
>>> beta_code_replace.replace_beta_code(beta_code_str)

str cltk.alphabet.grc.grc module

The Ancient Greek alphabet. Sources:

cltk.alphabet.grc.grc.expand_iota_subscript(input_str, lowercase=True)[source]

Find characters with iota subscript and replace with char + iota added.

>>> from cltk.alphabet import grc
>>> str_iota_subscript = "ἐν τῇ νῦν Ἑλλάδι καλεομένῃ χωρῇ οὕτω δ᾽ εἶπε τερᾴζων"
>>> grc.expand_iota_subscript(str_iota_subscript)
'ἐν τῆι νῦν ἑλλάδι καλεομένηι χωρῆι οὕτω δ᾽ εἶπε τεράιζων'
>>> grc.expand_iota_subscript(str_iota_subscript, lowercase=False)
'ἐν τῆΙ νῦν Ἑλλάδι καλεομένηΙ χωρῆΙ οὕτω δ᾽ εἶπε τεράΙζων'

Takes string with mixed Greek and non-Greek characters, and returns string with non-Greek characters removed.

>>> from cltk.alphabet import grc
>>> str_mixed_greek = "παρακλίνασ᾽ ἐπέκρανεν [744] δὲ γάμου πικρὰς τελευτάς, [745] δύσεδρος καὶ δυσόμιλος [746]"
>>> grc.filter_non_greek(str_mixed_greek)
'παρακλίνασ᾽ ἐπέκρανεν  δὲ γάμου πικρὰς τελευτάς  δύσεδρος καὶ δυσόμιλος'
