The DIS object


The DIS pre-defined object gives access to the disambiguation results and also allows you to tag or untag text subdivisions.

The DIS object can be used in the following functions, which are executed after disambiguation:

The functionalities of the DIS object are exposed through its methods, which can be grouped into these groups:

Text subdivisions: tokens and atoms

The methods of the DIS object are based on the creation of text subdivisions—with different granularity—operated by disambiguation. Disambiguation lists atoms immediately after the token they are part of. It's crucial to recognize and account for this feature when iterating through tokens. For example, given this input text:

Michael Jordan was one of the best basketball players of all time.

disambiguation identifies these 15 units as either tokens or atoms:

Index Text Type
0 Michael Jordan Token
1 Michael Atom
2 Jordan Atom
3 was Token
4 one Token
5 of Token
6 the Token
7 best Token
8 basketball players Token
9 basketball Atom
10 players Atom
11 of Token
12 all Token
13 time Token
14 . Token
