Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-329) Fuzzy query scoring issues
Date Mon, 15 Feb 2010 15:19:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-329?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12833835#action_12833835

Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-329:
------------------------------------

bq. I'm probably more interested in a partial match on the rarer surname than a partial match
on the common forename. Obliterating IDF completely as a factor would lose this feature (available
in FuzzyLikeThisQuery)

oh I see, this issue is really different from LUCENE-124 (they arent technically duplicates).
I can move my patch there. You can still create a 'smarter' method here, it won't get in the
way as now FuzzyQuery does not have a hardcoded rewrite method.

> Queries which automatically produce multiple terms (wildcard, range, prefix, 
> fuzzy etc)currently suffer from two problems:
> 1) Scores for matching documents are significantly smaller than term queries 
> because of the volume of terms introduced (A match on query Foo~ is 0.1 
> whereas a match on query Foo is 1).
> 2) The rarer forms of expanded terms are favoured over those of more common 
> forms because of the IDF. When using Fuzzy queries for example, rare mis-
> spellings typically appear in results before the more common correct spellings.
> I will attach a patch that corrects the issues identified above by 
> 1) Overriding Similarity.coord to counteract the downplaying of scores 
> introduced by expanding terms.
> 2) Taking the IDF factor of the most common form of expanded terms as the 
> basis of scoring all other expanded terms.
