KN

A port of Brian Romanowski's Java-based open source Kneser-Ney language model, according to Chen and Goodman's kneser-ney-mod-fix
description, to nodejs using the 'natural' npm package.

Usage [usage]

var kn = require('../lib/kn'),
    _ = require('underscore'),
    NGramCountModel = kn.NGramCountModel,
    KneserNeyModFixModel2 = kn.KneserNeyModFixModel2,
    NGram = kn.NGram;

// training is an array of strings (do not feed <s> </s> sentence delimiters, no '.')
var ngcm = new NGramCountModel();
for (var t=0;t<training.length;t++) ngcm.populate(training[t]);

var kn = new KneserNeyModFixModel2(ngcm);
var backoff = kn.calcBackoff();

// create an bigram, you have to use indices from the count model (if they are there)
var test = new NGram([ ngcm.index['i'], ngcm.index['have'] ]);

// find any matching trigrams and their probability
var hashes = backoff.forwardLookup[test.hash()];

// need a way to print ngrams, yeah, should probably be 'in' NGram
var printWords = function(ngram, index){
    var str = '';
    _.each(ngram.keys,function(key){
        str += index[key]+' ';
    });
    return str;
};

// print out the results
_.each(hashes,function(h){

    // in this case, the input is a bigram, output is a trigram (stored in highOrderNGrams)
    console.log('\tmatch:',printWords(backoff.highOrderNGrams[h]));
});
