DKPro Core is a collection of software components for natural language processing (NLP) based on the Apache UIMA framework. Many powerful and state-of-the-art NLP components are already freely available in the NLP research community. New and improved components are being developed and released continuously. The components cover the whole range of NLP-related processing tasks. DKPro Core provides wrappers for such third-party tool as well as original NLP components. DKPro Core builds heavily on uimaFIT which allows for rapid and easy development of NLP processing pipelines.
DKPro WSD provides UIMA components which encapsulate corpus readers, linguistic annotators, lexical semantic resources, WSD algorithms, and evaluation and reporting tools. You configure the components, or write new ones, and arrange them into a data processing pipeline. DKPro WSD is modular and flexible. Components which provide the same functionality can be freely swapped. You can easily run the same algorithm on different data sets, or test several different algorithms on the same data set.
