Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1629) contrib intelligent Analyzer for Chinese
Date Fri, 15 May 2009 15:33:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1629?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12709885#action_12709885

Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-1629:
-------------------------------------

another potential issue with big5 i want to point out is that many of the big5 character sets
such as HKSCS have characters that are mapped into regions of unicode outside of the BMP.

just glancing at the code, some things will need to be modified for this to work correctly
with surrogate pairs, various functions that take char will need to take codepoint (int),
etc.

> I wrote a Analyzer for apache lucene for analyzing sentences in Chinese language. it's
called "imdict-chinese-analyzer", the project on google code is here: http://code.google.com/p/imdict-chinese-analyzer/
> In Chinese, "我是中国人"(I am Chinese), should be tokenized as "我"(I)   "是"(am)
  "中国人"(Chinese), not "我" "是中" "国人". So the analyzer must handle each sentence
properly, or there will be mis-understandings everywhere in the index constructed by Lucene,
and the accuracy of the search engine will be affected seriously!
> Although there are two analyzer packages in apache repository which can handle Chinese:
ChineseAnalyzer and CJKAnalyzer, they take each character or every two adjoining characters
as a single word, this is obviously not true in reality, also this strategy will increase
the index size and hurt the performance baddly.
> The algorithm of imdict-chinese-analyzer is based on Hidden Markov Model (HMM), so it
can tokenize chinese sentence in a really intelligent way. Tokenizaion accuracy of this model
is above 90% according to the paper "HHMM-based Chinese Lexical analyzer ICTCLAL" while other
analyzer's is about 60%.
> As imdict-chinese-analyzer is a really fast and intelligent. I want to contribute it
to the apache lucene repository.
