Instance Method


Enumerates over a given range of the string and calls the specified block for each tag.


func enumerateTags(in range: NSRange, scheme tagScheme: NSLinguisticTagScheme, options opts: NSLinguisticTagger.Options = [], using block: (NSLinguisticTag?, NSRange, NSRange, UnsafeMutablePointer<ObjCBool>) -> Void)



The range to analyze.


The tag scheme. For possible values, see NSLinguisticTagScheme.


The linguistic tagger options to use. See NSLinguisticTagger.Options for possible values.


The block to apply to ranges of the string.

The block takes the following arguments:


The located linguistic tag.


The range of the linguistic tag.


The range of the sentence in which the tag occurs.


A reference to a Boolean value. The block can set the value to true to stop further processing of the set. The stop argument is an out-only argument. You should only ever set this Boolean to true within the block.


This method’s block is called for all tokens intersecting a given range, supplying tags and ranges. The tagger segments the string into sentences and tokens as necessary, and return those ranges along with a tag for any scheme in its array of tag schemes. For example, if the tag scheme is lexicalClass, the tags specify the part of speech (for word tokens) or the type of whitespace or punctuation (for whitespace or punctuation tokens). If the tag scheme is lemma, the tags specify the stem form of the word (if known) for each word token.

This is a convenience method for calling the enumerateTags(in:unit:scheme:options:using:) method, passing NSLinguisticTaggerUnit.word as the linguistic unit.
