Haskell has very limited support for high-level Natural Language
Processing (tokenization, sentence splitting, Named-entity
recognition, etc...).  NLTK (python), OpenNLP (java), and FleeLing
(C++) all have quite a lot to offer here, but there aren't currently
any bindings to those implementations from Haskell.  FreeLing is the
best choice from a pure languages standpoint, but it is GPL, which
would infect the resulting bindings and reduce the utility of the

I have some hope that jvm-bridge can be resurrected to bind to
OpenNLP, but that's something I've only spent a few days thinking
about.  (I'd love to have some pointers / help / documentation on
jvm-bridge, if anyone has insights :)
