tidystopwords: R package for multilingual stopwords

Authors: Silvie Cinková*, Maciej Eder

An R package containing customizable lists of stopwords in multiple languages; it attempts to follow tidy data principles.

The idea behind this package is to give the user control over the stopword selection. The core generate_stoplist() function relies on multilingual_stopwords(), a large data frame derived from the current release of the Universal Dependencies Treebanks. We have included all languages whose corpora totalled above 10,000 tokens – large enough to cover all common closed-class words, such as prepositions, conjunctions, and auxiliary verbs. The data comes encoded in UTF-8.
