In SpaCy, you can use the part-of-speech (POS) tagging functionality to classify words as nouns. POS tagging is the process of marking each word in a text with its corresponding POS tag. 

Numerous uses for noun classification using SpaCy include: 

  • Information Extraction: You can extract important details about the subjects discussed in a document, such as individuals, organizations, places, etc., by identifying the nouns in the text. 
  • Text summarization: You can extract the key subjects or entities discussed in a text and use them to summarize the text by selecting important nouns in the text. 
  • Text classification: You can categorize a text into different categories or themes by determining the most prevalent nouns in the text. 
  • Text generation: You can create new material that is coherent and semantically equivalent to the original text by identifying the nouns in a text and the relationships between them. 
  • Named Entity Recognition (NER): SpaCy provides built-in support for NER, which can be used to extract entities from text with high accuracy. 
  • Query Expansion 
  • Language Translation 

Here is how you can perform noun classification using SpaCy:

in this solution we have used Spacy library.


  1. Download and install VS Code on your desktop.
  2. Open VS Code and create a new file in the editor.
  3. Copy the code snippet that you want to run, using the "Copy" button or by selecting the text and using the copy command (Ctrl+C on Windows/Linux or Cmd+C on Mac).
  4. Paste the code into your file in VS Code, and save the file with a meaningful name.
  5. Open a terminal window or command prompt on your computer.
  6. For download spacy: use this command pip install spacy [3.4.3]
  7. Once spacy is installed, you can download the en_core_web_sm model using the following command: python -m spacy download en_core_web_sm Alternatively, you can install the model directly using pip: pip install en_core_web_sm
  8. To run the code, open the file in VS Code and click the "Run" button in the top menu, or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+N (on Windows and Linux) or Cmd+Alt+N (on Mac). The output of your code will appear in the VS Code output console.

I hope you found this useful. I have added the link to dependent libraries, version information in the following sections.

I found this code snippet by searching for "Noun Classification using Spacy " in kandi. You can try any such use case!

Environment Tested

I tested this solution in the following versions. Be mindful of changes when working with other versions.

  1. The solution is created in Python 3.7.15 version
  2. The solution is tested on Spacy 3.4.3 version

Using this solution, we are able to collect the noun separately in the text with the help of Spacy Library in python. This process also facilities an easy to use, hassle free method to create a hands-on working version of code which would help us to collect Nouns using Python.
