I am trying to input text into my word processor to be split into sentences first and then into words.

An example paragraph:

When the blow was repeated,together with an admonition in
childish sentences, he turned over upon his back, and held his paws in a peculiar manner.

1) This a numbered sentence
2) This is the second numbered sentence

At the same time with his ears and his eyes he offered a small prayer to the child.

Below are the examples
- This an example of bullet point sentence
- This is also an example of bullet point sentence

I tried the following codes

from nltk.tokenize import TweetTokenizer, sent_tokenize

tokenizer_words = TweetTokenizer()
tokens_sentences = [tokenizer_words.tokenize(t) for t in 
nltk.sent_tokenize(input_text)]
print(tokens_sentences)
import nltk

sent_text = nltk.sent_tokenize(text) # this gives us a list of sentences
# now loop over each sentence and tokenize it separately
for sentence in sent_text:
    tokenized_text = nltk.word_tokenize(sentence)
    tagged = nltk.pos_tag(tokenized_text)
    print(tagged)

The Output I got

[
['When', 'the', 'blow', 'was', 'repeated', ',', 'together', 'with', 'an', 'admonition', 'in', 'childish', 'sentences', ',', 'he', 'turned', 'over', 'upon', 'his', 'back', ',', 'and', 'held', 'his', 'paws', 'in', 'a', 'peculiar', 'manner', '.'], 
['1', ')', 'This', 'a', 'numbered', 'sentence', '2', ')', 'This', 'is', 'the', 'second', 'numbered', 'sentence','At', 'the', 'same', 'time', 'with', 'his', 'ears', 'and', 'his', 'eyes', 'he', 'offered', 'a', 'small', 'prayer', 'to', 'the', 'child', '.']
['Below', 'are', 'the', 'examples', '-', 'This', 'an', 'example', 'of', 'bullet', 'point', 'sentence',
'-', 'This', 'also','an', 'example', 'of', 'bullet', 'point', 'sentence']
]

Required Output

[
['When', 'the', 'blow', 'was', 'repeated', ',', 'together', 'with', 'an', 'admonition', 'in', 'childish', 'sentences', ',', 'he', 'turned', 'over', 'upon', 'his', 'back', ',', 'and', 'held', 'his', 'paws', 'in', 'a', 'peculiar', 'manner', '.'], 
['1', ')', 'This', 'a', 'numbered', 'sentence']
['2', ')', 'This', 'is', 'the', 'second', 'numbered', 'sentence']
['At', 'the', 'same', 'time', 'with', 'his', 'ears', 'and', 'his', 'eyes', 'he', 'offered', 'a', 'small', 'prayer', 'to', 'the', 'child', '.']
['Below', 'are', 'the', 'examples']
['-', 'This', 'an', 'example', 'of', 'bullet', 'point', 'sentence']
['-', 'This', 'also','an', 'example', 'of', 'bullet', 'point', 'sentence']
]
