List of 25+ Natural Language Processing APIs

Natural Language Processing APINatural Language Processing, or NLP, is a field of computer science, artificial intelligence, and linguistics concerned with the interactions between computers and human (natural) languages.

Here are useful APIs that help bridge the human-computer interaction:
