Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2498) add sentence boundary charfilter
Date Mon, 14 Jun 2010 03:13:13 GMT


Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-2498:

I also have an abbreviations filter, which once it faces an EOS token it checks it's table
for the previous word - if it's a match then it does not consider this a true EOS token.nso
case like "mr." are covered.

There are false negatives too though, if the abbreviation does end a sentence, but you've
got to make some tradeoffs ...

like I said, I'm sure the standard defines things better than I did...

> From the discussion of LUCENE-2167:
> It would be nice to have a CharFilter? to mark sentence boundaries.
> Such functionality would be useful for:
> * prevent phrase queries with 0 slop from matching across sentences
> * inhibiting multiword synonyms, or shingles, etc.
> For sentence boundary detection we could use Jflex's support for the Unicode Sentence_Break
property etc,
> and the UAX#29 definition as a default grammar.
> One idea is to just mark the boundaries with a user-provided String.
> As a simple use-case, a user could then add this string to a stopfilter, and it would
introduce a position increment.
> This would inhibit phrase queries, etc.
> a user could use the sentence-markers to do more advanced processing downstream.
