Techopedia explains Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK)

The Natural Language Toolkit is an open source library for the Python programming language originally written by Steven Bird, Edward Loper and Ewan Klein for use in development and education.
It comes with a hands-on guide that introduces topics in computational linguistics as well as programming fundamentals for Python which makes it suitable for linguists who have no deep knowledge in programming, engineers and researchers that need to delve into computational linguistics, students and educators.

NLTK includes more than 50 corpora and lexical sources such as the Penn Treebank Corpus, Open Multilingual Wordnet, Problem Report Corpus, and Lin’s Dependency Thesaurus.
