p_attributes: Get p-attributes.

p_attributesR Documentation

Get p-attributes.

Description

In a CWB corpus, every token has positional attributes. While s-attributes cover a range of tokens, every single token in the token stream of a corpus will have a set of positional attributes (such as part-of-speech, or lemma). The available p-attributes are returned by the p_attributes-method.

Usage

p_attributes(.Object, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'character'
p_attributes(.Object, p_attribute = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'corpus'
p_attributes(.Object, p_attribute = NULL)

## S4 method for signature 'slice'
p_attributes(.Object, p_attribute = NULL, decode = TRUE)

## S4 method for signature 'partition_bundle'
p_attributes(.Object, p_attribute = NULL, decode = TRUE)

## S4 method for signature 'remote_corpus'
p_attributes(.Object, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'remote_partition'
p_attributes(.Object, ...)

Arguments

.Object

A length-one character vector, or a partition object.

...

Arguments passed to get_token_stream.

p_attribute

A p-attribute to decode, provided by a length-one character vector.

decode

A length-one logical value. Whether to return decoded p-attributes or unique token ids.

Details

The p_attributes-method returns the p-attributes defined for the corpus the partition is derived from, if argument p_attribute is NULL (the default). If p_attribute is defined, the unique values for the p-attribute are returned.
