Finding and counting the frequency of known pairs of words in multiple files [closed]

When using combinations() you are getting all pairs, even the non-adjacent ones. You can create a function that will return the adjacent pairs. I’ve tried the following code and it worked, maybe it can give you some insight:

import os
import re
from collections import Counter

def pairs(text):
    ans = re.findall(r'[A-Za-z]+', text)
    return (tuple(ans[i:i+2]) for i in xrange(len(ans)-1))

mypairs = tuple([ tuple(line.split()[-2:]) for line in open('results.txt')])

c = Counter()
folderpath="path/to/directory"
for dirpath, dnames, fnames in os.walk(folderpath):
    for f in fnames:
        if not '.txt' in f: continue
        for line in open(os.path.join(dirpath, f)):
            c += Counter(p for p in pairs(line) if p in mypairs)

for item in c.most_common():
    print item
