WordSmith Tools Help



The point of it...

The point of this choice is to change a whole series of settings according to the type of corpus you wish to process.

When you change the setting above, any valid data as explained below will get loaded into your defaults.


How to do it

Press the Edit button to create or edit the custom settings (the file is called custom_tag_settings.xml and it'll get saved in your Documents\wsmith8 folder).


customising tag settings form

To start a new set, press Add and give a suitable name (such as Shakespeare for processing the Shakespeare corpus).

Fill in the boxes and press Save.


All boxes will have leading and trailing spaces removed.

Use auto for automatic processing e.g. of sentence ends.

Checking the default box means that this set gets chosen by default and any tag or entity files will get automatically loaded for you, every time WordSmith starts up. (If you don't want that, leave default unchecked, and these alternatives are available and can be chosen by simply choosing the name in the box.

Don't forget to save.
