Output

Here we tokenize the first two sentences of Sarah Hale's poem "Mary had a little lamb."

Mary had a little lamb,
whose fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to go.

The JSON and XML WordTokenizerResult echo the input text, the ISO language code langCode, and the corpusConfig. The sentences container wraps a sequence of sentence entries each of which represents a single parsed sentence from the input text. Each sentence contains a sequence of token entries representing the words and punctuation in the sentence. The HTML and text versions provide displayable versions of the tokenized sentences.
