What is NLTK?
The acronym stands for "Natural Language ToolKit". NLTK is educational
software for those interested in natural language processing, though some
have also incorporated it into commercial applications (and its License
supports this). A key use case is processing standard datasets using the
library's corpus readers, to support ML experiments in other packages.
