What Is a Sentence Filter?

With this online tool, you can find and extract sentences from the given text based on specific search criteria. Each sentence of the text is tested against a search filter, and if it matches, then the program prints it on the screen. The program offers three different sentence search filters. The first filter is called "Filter by a Substring" and it allows you to enter any substring that may occur anywhere in a sentence. The program will then extract all the sentences containing this substring. For example, if you enter the pattern "peach", then all sentences containing this pattern will be found (the words in the sentences with this pattern might include "impeached", "peacher", and also "peach" itself). The second filter is called "Filter by All Symbols", and it allows you to enter all symbols that should be present in the sentence. The program will then extract those sentences that are completely composed of these symbols. The symbols can be letters, digits, or punctuation marks. For example, if you enter "AabdHnpsuy .", the program will extract the sentences "A sunny day." and "Happy baby." because they both include the capital letters "A" and "H", lowercase letters "abdnpsuy", a space " ", and a dot ".". The third filter is called "Filter by a Regexp" and it allows you to extract sentences based on a regular expression. Each sentence is tested against the given regular expression, and if it matches, then it's printed out. For example, you can use the regex "^\S+(\s+\S+){3}$" to get all sentences that consist of exactly four words. If you quickly want to get the opposite results – those sentences that do not match the selected criteria, then you can enable the "Inverse Filter Matches" mode. The tool also includes the "Delete Repeated Sentences" option, which removes all duplicate sentences from the output. Additionally, for convenience, you can enable the option "Print One Sentence Per Line", which will display all the filtered sentences in a vertical list, one per line. Textabulous!

Filter Sentences by a Substring

In the input of this example, we paste an excerpt from an article about an annual music festival. As we're huge fans of "The Beatles", we want to extract all the information about our band and find sentences where they are mentioned. We use the "Filter by a Substring" option and enter "The Beatles" as the search substring. In the output, three sentences get filtered from the text and they are exactly what we were looking for.

The music festival was a huge success this year. One highlight was the performance by The Beatles tribute band. The crowd went wild as they launched into "Hey Jude". Many fans had come specifically to see The Beatles band. The band played all the classic hits. The Beatles were one of the most influential bands in history. Overall, it was a fantastic festival.

Extract Sentences Containing Specific Symbols

In this example, we're working with text about bees and we are looking for sentences that don't use the descender letters ("g", "j", "q", "p", and "y"). To find all such sentences, we select the "Filter by All Symbols" mode in the options and enter all other letters except the descenders there. We find that there are two sentences that match this criterion.

Bees are insects. They are found all over the world. They are important for pollination. They help plants to produce fruits and seeds. Bees collect nectar and pollen from flowers. They store the nectar in their hives. Bees make honey from the nectar. Honey is a sweet food. Many people enjoy eating honey. Bees also make beeswax. Beeswax is used to make candles and other products. Without bees, our world would be very different.

Filter Sentences by a Regexp

In this example, we use a regular expression filter. We enter the pattern "/[$€]/" which matches all sentences that use the currency symbols "$" or "€". But we also activate the "Inverse Filter Matches" option, which finds all sentences that do not contain these currencies. Also, for our convenience, we remove all repeated sentences and display each of the filtered sentences on its own line.

In the United States, one pineapple costs $3.99. In Mexico, it costs 50 MXN. In Mexico, it costs 50 MXN. In Thailand, it costs 80 THB. In Brazil, it costs 6 BRL. In France, it costs €2.50. And in Japan, it costs ¥400. And in Japan, it costs ¥400.
