textacy is a Python library for performing a variety of natural language processing (NLP) tasks, built on the high-performance spacy library. With the fundamentals --- tokenization, part-of-speech tagging, dependency parsing, etc. --- delegated to another library, textacy focuses on the tasks that come before and follow after. Note: Docs used to be hosted on ReadTheDocs, but the builds stopped working many months ago, and now those docs are out-of-date. This is unfortunate, especially since ReadTheDocs allows for multiple versions while GitHub Pages does not. I'll keep trying on ReadTheDocs; if the build issues ever get resolved, I'll switch the docs back.
