Python | Common words among tuple strings

  • Last Updated : 29 Oct, 2019

Sometimes, while working with tuples, we can have a problem in which we need to find the intersection of words that occur in strings inside single tuple with string as its elements. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved.

Method #1 : Using join() + set() + & operator + split()
The combination of above functions can be used to perform this particular task. In this, we first convert each tuple to set and then perform intersection of the element’s words splitted by split(). Last step is to join all common elements using join().




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Common words among tuple strings
# Using join() + set() + & operator + split()
  
# Initializing tuple 
test_tup = ('gfg is best', 'gfg is for geeks', 'gfg is for all')
  
# printing original tuple 
print("The original tuple is : " + str(test_tup))
  
# Common words among tuple strings
# Using join() + set() + & operator + split()
res = ", ".join(sorted(set(test_tup[0].split()) &\
          set(test_tup[1].split()) &\
          set(test_tup[2].split())))
  
# printing result
print("Common words among tuple are : " + res)
Output :
The original tuple is : ('gfg is best', 'gfg is for geeks', 'gfg is for all')
Common words among tuple are : gfg, is

 

Method #2 : Using map() + reduce() + lambda
The combination of above methods can also be used to perform this particular task. In this, we just combine all elements of tuple to check for common elements using lambda and reduce(). The advantage of this method is that it can work with tuple with more than countable elements easily. Works with Python3 only.






# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Common words among tuple strings
# Using map() + reduce() + lambda
  
# Initializing tuple 
test_tup = ('gfg is best', 'gfg is for geeks', 'gfg is for all')
  
# printing original tuple 
print("The original tuple is : " + str(test_tup))
  
# Common words among tuple strings
# Using map() + reduce() + lambda
res = ", ".join(reduce(lambda i, j : i & j, 
                map(lambda x: set(x.split()), test_tup)))
  
# printing result
print("Common words among tuple are : " + res)
Output :
The original tuple is : ('gfg is best', 'gfg is for geeks', 'gfg is for all')
Common words among tuple are : gfg, is
