Text tokenization divides text into meaningful units like words, sentences, and paragraphs. Many languages, including Hebrew, have explicit boundary markers for words (spaces and some punctuation marks) and sentences (periods), but these are sometimes ambiguous.

The MILA Hebrew Tokenization Tool divides inputted undotted Hebrew text into tokens, sentences, and paragraphs, and the XML output follows MILA's standards for corpora.
