How to Part-of-Speech Tag a String and Filter the Adverbs in Python

For everyone out there struggling with part-of-speech tagging, this article is going to save you a ton of time.

Our first step toward setting up this functionality is simple: install the Cloudmersive NLP client.

pip install git+

Within this client library is a function called pos_tagger_tag_adverbs, which is going to do our work for us. Below you will see how to structure your code. Use the request object to store the string you want tagged.

from __future__ import print_functionimport timeimport cloudmersive_nlp_api_clientfrom import ApiExceptionfrom pprint import pprint# Configure API key authorization: Apikeyconfiguration = cloudmersive_nlp_api_client.Configuration()configuration.api_key['Apikey'] = 'YOUR_API_KEY'# Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed# configuration.api_key_prefix['Apikey'] = 'Bearer'# create an instance of the API classapi_instance = cloudmersive_nlp_api_client.PosTaggerApi(cloudmersive_nlp_api_client.ApiClient(configuration))request = cloudmersive_nlp_api_client.PosRequest() # PosRequest | Input stringtry:# Part-of-speech tag a string, filter to adverbsapi_response = api_instance.pos_tagger_tag_adverbs(request)pprint(api_response)except ApiException as e:print("Exception when calling PosTaggerApi->pos_tagger_tag_adverbs: %s\n" % e)

Now if we just run our code, boom! Our tagged adverbs will be returned faster than you can say easily, peasily, lemon squeezily.
