Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1190) a lexicon object for merging spellchecker and synonyms from stemming
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2010 21:16:37 GMT


Otis Gospodnetic commented on LUCENE-1190:

Just came across this old issue, and still can't easily follow it.  But I wonder if this issue
has become irrelevant with all the new work on analyzers that Robert Muir & Co. are doing?

> Some Lucene features need a list of referring word. Spellchecking is the basic example,
but synonyms is an other use. Other tools can be used smoothlier with a list of words, without
disturbing the main index : stemming and other simplification of word (anagram, phonetic ...).
> For that, I suggest a Lexicon object, wich contains words (Term + frequency), wich can
be built from Lucene Directory, or plain text files.
> Classical TokenFilter can be used with Lexicon (LowerCaseFilter and ISOLatin1AccentFilter
should be the most useful).
> Lexicon uses a Lucene Directory, each Word is a Document, each meta is a Field (word,
ngram, phonetic, fields, anagram, size ...).
> Above a minimum size, number of differents words used in an index can be considered as
stable. So, a standard Lexicon (built from wikipedia by example) can be used.
> A similarTokenFilter is provided.
> A spellchecker will come soon.
> A fuzzySearch implementation, a neutral synonym TokenFilter can be done.
> Unused words can be remove on demand (lazy delete?)
> Any criticism or suggestions?
