With the help of nltk.tokenize.SpaceTokenizer() method, we are able to extract the tokens from string of words on the basis of space between them by using tokenize.SpaceTokenizer() method.

Syntax : tokenize.SpaceTokenizer()
Return : Return the tokens of words.

Example #1 :
In this example we can see that by using tokenize.SpaceTokenizer() method, we are able to extract the tokens from stream to words having space between them.




# import SpaceTokenizer() method from nltk
from nltk.tokenize import SpaceTokenizer
     
# Create a reference variable for Class SpaceTokenizer
tk = SpaceTokenizer()
     
# Create a string input
gfg = "Geeksfor Geeks.. .$$&* \nis\t for geeks"
     
# Use tokenize method
geek = tk.tokenize(gfg)
     
print(geek)

Output :

[‘Geeksfor’, ‘Geeks..’, ‘.$$&*’, ‘\nis\t’, ‘for’, ‘geeks’]

Example #2 :




# import SpaceTokenizer() method from nltk
from nltk.tokenize import SpaceTokenizer
     
# Create a reference variable for Class SpaceTokenizer
tk = SpaceTokenizer()
     
# Create a string input
gfg = "The price\t of burger \nin BurgerKing is Rs.36.\n"
     
# Use tokenize method
geek = tk.tokenize(gfg)
     
print(geek)

Output :

[‘The’, ‘price\t’, ‘of’, ‘burger’, ‘\nin’, ‘BurgerKing’, ‘is’, ‘Rs.36.\n’]
