Return the count of sentences in a corpus or character object.

nsentence(x)

Arguments

x

a character or corpus whose sentences will be counted

Value

count(s) of the total sentences per text

Note

nsentence() relies on the boundaries definitions in the stringi package (see stri_opts_brkiter). It does not count sentences correctly if the text has been transformed to lower case, and for this reason nsentence() will issue a warning if it detects all lower-cased text.

Examples

# simple example txt <- c(text1 = "This is a sentence: second part of first sentence.", text2 = "A word. Repeated repeated.", text3 = "Mr. Jones has a PhD from the LSE. Second sentence.") nsentence(txt)
#> text1 text2 text3 #> 1 2 2
