get_type: Get corpus/partition type.

get_typeR Documentation

Get corpus/partition type.

Description

To generate fulltext output, different templates can be used with a behavior that depends on the type of a corpus. get_type will return the type of corpus if it is a specialized one, or NULL.

Usage

get_type(.Object)

## S4 method for signature 'corpus'
get_type(.Object)

## S4 method for signature 'character'
get_type(.Object)

## S4 method for signature 'partition_bundle'
get_type(.Object)

## S4 method for signature 'subcorpus_bundle'
get_type(.Object)

Arguments

.Object

A partition, partition_bundle, Corpus object, or a length-one character vector indicating a CWB corpus.

Details

When generating a partition, the corpus type will be prefixed to the class that is generated (separated by underscore). If the corpus type is not NULL, a class inheriting from the partition-class is instantiated. Note that at this time, only plpr_partition and press_partition is implemented.

Examples

use("polmineR")
use(pkg = "RcppCWB", corpus = "REUTERS")

get_type("GERMAPARLMINI")

p <- partition("GERMAPARLMINI", date = "2009-10-28")
get_type(p)
is(p)

pb <- partition_bundle("GERMAPARLMINI", s_attribute = "date")
get_type(pb)

get_type("REUTERS") # returns NULL - no specialized corpus
