RegexpChunkParser.parse(chunk_struct, trace=None)[source]
  • chunk_struct (Tree) – the chunk structure to be (further) chunked
  • trace (int) – The level of tracing that should be used when parsing a text. 0 will generate no tracing output; 1 will generate normal tracing output; and 2 or highter will generate verbose tracing output. This value overrides the trace level value that was given to the constructor.
Return type:



a chunk structure that encodes the chunks in a given tagged sentence. A chunk is a non-overlapping linguistic group, such as a noun phrase. The set of chunks identified in the chunk structure depends on the rules used to define this RegexpChunkParser.
