Subject Are deleted words allowed in a sloppy phrase query?
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2004 23:48:08 GMT
I had hoped that I could use PhraseQuery as kind of a "fuzzy search on phrases". It works as
long as ALL of the query terms match in the document. Doesn't the slop factor provide for
added terms?
For example:
Text = "a b c d"
Query = "a b e"~2
Should the query match? We basically have on insertion in the query. This doesn't seem to
be the case for all my tests.
