Subject Fuzzy query modification
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2011 02:25:03 GMT
By default it works using the edit distance and computes its score based on
that. One thing lacking with this computing/scoring is the sequential
context .

i.e., if we have have set of words in a search string(phrase) and if we
search for this phrase using (boolean query in conjunction with fuzzy
query). Any exact matches to any word in the search string(phrase) should be
boosted based on length of that matched word. Are they any options for doing
something similar to this. ? 

On the other side, is there option for penalizing the operations while
computing the distances for FuzzyQuery, i.e different penalties for
substitution,removal or addition?
