imperative(dataframe, person.var, text.var, lock.incomplete = FALSE, additional.names = NULL, parallel = FALSE, warning = FALSE)
TRUElocks incomplete sentences (sentences ending with "|") from being marked as imperative.
TRUEattempts to run the function on multiple cores. Note that this may not mean a speed boost if you have one core or if the data set is smaller as the cluster takes time to create. With the
mraja1spldata set, with an 8 core machine,
imperativehad 1/3 the running time.
TRUEprovides comma warnings (sentences that contain numerous commas that may be handled incorrectly by the algorithm).
Returns a dataframe with a text variable indicating imperative sentences. Imperative sentences are marked with * followed by the original end mark.
