Starting today, Amazon Comprehend supports Syntax analysis —enabling customers to analyze text using tokenization and Parts of Speech (PoS). The Amazon Comprehend Syntax API allows customers to identify word boundaries and labels like nouns and adjectives within the text.  

Customers can write their own analysis rules looking for specific conditions within the text. For example, customers can look for all of the nouns mentioned within a document and then look for the correlating verbs related to those nouns. “The customers moved quickly when doors opened” allows a developer to understand the nouns (customers, doors) and the adverb (quickly). These capabilities enable customers to build a variety of custom analysis scripts like analyzing text for word combinations to support their specific use cases.
