Sometimes, more than one type of data can come in Python list and sometimes it’s undesirably tokenized and hence we require to join the words that have been tokenized and leave the digits as they are. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be achieved.
Method #1 : Using list comprehension +
This task can be performed using the list comprehension, first by joining the words and then joining the digits and then separating only the numbers, while joining to form the resultant string.
The original list : [‘Geeks’, ‘5’, ‘for’, ‘9’, ‘Geeks’, ‘2’, ‘5’]
The joined adjacent word list(ignoring digits) : [‘GeeksforGeeks’, ‘5’, ‘9’, ‘2’, ‘5’]
Method #2 : Using
itertools.chain.from_iterable() + groupby() + join()
This task can also be performed using the groupby function which groups the digits together and then
from_iterables function joins the list and characters together joined by the join function.
The original list : [‘Geeks’, ‘5’, ‘for’, ‘Geeks’, ‘2’, ‘3’]
The joined adjacent word list(ignoring digits) : [‘Geeks’, ‘5’, ‘forGeeks’, ‘2’, ‘3’]
