8.1.13. cltk.prosody package

8.1.13.2. Submodules

8.1.13.3. cltk.prosody.gmh module

Module for calculating rhyme scheme for a MHG stanza.

class cltk.prosody.gmh.Verse(text)[source]

Bases: object

Calculate rhyme scheme for a MHG stanza.

to_phonetics()[source]

Transcribe phonetics.

rhyme_scheme(rhyme_size=3)[source]

Calculates the rhyme scheme of a given stanza. It doesn’t yet support phonetical rhyming (homophones) and thus is still error-prone

Example

>>> stanza = ['Ein rîchiu küneginne, frou Uote ir muoter hiez.', 'ir vater der hiez Dancrât, der in diu erbe liez', 'sît nâch sîme lebene, ein ellens rîcher man,', 'der ouch in sîner jugende grôzer êren vil gewan.']
>>> S = Verse(stanza)
>>> S.rhyme_scheme(2)
'AABB'

8.1.13.4. cltk.prosody.grc module

This program returns the prosimetric scansion of Greek texts.

A user is first prompted to supply the file path of the text they wish to scan. Note that this text must be a relatively ‘clean’ text, as the opening function (i.e., tokenize) will only remove numbers and all punctuation that is not a period. The tokenizer will also force lower case on the text. The text will then be tokenized and syllabified. Before the text undergoes the actual scansion functions, the text will be re-tokenized into a simple list of words and syllables. Finally, the simplified tokenized text will be scanned according to typical Greek scansion rules. The details of these rules are delineated in the docstrings of the specific scansion functions. The final output is the resulting scansion.

Warning

Known bug: Reduplicated syllables in a single sentence are not scanned separately.

class cltk.prosody.grc.Scansion[source]

Bases: object

Scans Greek texts that already contain macronized (i.e., long and shorts) texts.

scan_text(input_string)[source]

The primary method for the class.

Parameters

input_string (str) – A string of macronized text.

Return type

List[str]

Returns

List representation of each word’s long (¯) and short (˘) values.

>>> from cltk.prosody.grc import Scansion
>>> text_string = "νέος μὲν καὶ ἄπειρος, δικῶν ἔγωγε ἔτι. μὲν καὶ ἄπειρος."
>>> Scansion().scan_text(text_string)
['˘¯¯¯˘¯¯˘¯˘¯˘˘x', '¯¯˘¯x']
_clean_text(text)[source]

Remove input text of extraneous (non-stop) punction (e.g., ","). By default, ":", ";", and "." are defined as stops.

Parameters

text (str) – Text string containing non-stop punctuation.

Return type

str

Returns

Text with unnecessary punctuation removed

>>> from cltk.prosody.grc import Scansion
>>> not_clean = "νέος μὲν καὶ ἄπειρος, δικῶν ἔγωγε ἔτι. μὲν καὶ ἄπειρος."
>>> Scansion()._clean_text(not_clean)
'νέος μὲν καὶ ἄπειρος δικῶν ἔγωγε ἔτι. μὲν καὶ ἄπειρος.'
_clean_accents(text)[source]

Remove most accent marks. This the circumflexes over alphas and iotas in the text since they mark vocalic quantity.

Parameters

Text string with only accents required for processing.

>>> from cltk.prosody.grc import Scansion

_long_by_position(syllable, sentence)[source]

Check if syllable is long by position. Returns True if syllable is long by position Long by position includes contexts when:

  1. Next syllable begins with two consonants, unless those consonants are a stop + liquid combination

  2. Next syllable begins with a double consonant

  3. Syllable ends with a consonant and the next syllable begins with a consonant

Parameters
  • syllable (str) – Current syllable

  • sentence (List[str]) – Sentence in which syllable appears

Return type

bool

Returns

Whether or not a syllable is long by position
