Chapter 7

Using Natural Language Tools in Forensics

Abstract

This chapter provides a practical introduction to Natural Language Processing (NLP) in Python. I leverage the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) to provide a basis for both experimentation and practical application of NLP using Python. A new Python application, NLTKQuery is created along with an extensible classNLTKQuery that can be used as a basis for new exploration into NLP.
