I am a new Prodigy user. I got confused with the
ner.teach recipe documentation on patterns.
For this option, the documentation says : 'Optional path to match patterns file to filter out entities.'
My understanding was that the input patterns would be excluded from the suggestions. However when digging into the code, I found that it was the opposite : input patterns are highlighted in the suggestions.
I feel like the
ner.manual documentation on the
--patterns option ('Optional path to match patterns file to pre-highlight entity spans.') is clearer.
What do you think ? Did I miss something about this option ?
Thank you !
