A lexicon is a list of words, phrases, or other information. Grooper Lexicons are also text-based lists referenced in various ways by other objects.

Lexicons can be used to:

  • Look up values during data extraction
    • For example, an extractor could be set up to return first or last names from a Lexicon of common first or last names.
  • Translate extracted values from one value to another
    • For example, an extractor could be set up to look the full name of a company (ACME Document Corporation) in a Lexicon and translate the result to an abbreviated version (ADC)
  • Assign weighting values for fuzzy matching
  • Determine the frequency of values within a document set
  • and more.
