Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1297) Allow other string distance measures in spellchecker
Date Sat, 31 May 2008 15:45:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1297?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12601397#action_12601397

Thomas Morton commented on LUCENE-1297:
---------------------------------------

I think the dice coefficient would be nice to have.  I'm not sure the jaccard index makes
sense in the context of spelling correction since order isn't captured.  I implemented JaroWinkler
since I'm suggesting proper names and it does a good job with those.

With the StringDistance interface defined, anyone can implement the distance measure however
they want.  What I think would be very useful is weighted version of edit distance with the
weights tuned to your target language/domain.  Also with support in solr for specifying this
parameter in the SpellCheckRequestHandler, changing this just becomes a config change.

> Modified SpellChecker to take distacne measure as in constructor or in set method and
to use interface when calling.
