Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-2995) factor out a shared spellchecking module
Date Tue, 29 Mar 2011 17:37:06 GMT


Hoss Man commented on LUCENE-2995:

i don't really have any better suggestions (ack, i hate puns unintentional or otherwise) on
the name, but the one word of caution i would put out there is that "suggestions" and "suggester"
are vague about what they "suggest"

people might confuse this with "morelikethis" or "recommendation engine" type stuff.

if that's in the scope for what you guys have in mind for this module, go ahead.

if not .... maybe "query-suggester" or "term-suggester" ?

> In lucene's contrib we have spellchecking support (index-based spellchecker, directspellchecker,
> we also have some things like pluggable comparators.
> In solr we have auto-suggest support (with two implementations it looks like), some good
utilities like HighFrequencyDictionary, etc.
> I think spellchecking is really important... google has upped the ante to what users
> So I propose we combine all this stuff into a shared modules/spellchecker, which will
make it easier
