Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2764) Create a NorwegianLightStemmer and NorwegianMinimalStemmer
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 21:22:55 GMT


Robert Muir commented on SOLR-2764:

Jan, i wasn't trying to be critical about these endings, because of course some of the existing
light stemmers
have a few _selected_ derivational endings that are taken care of. And thats really what its
all about,
when we are talking about something like adjective->noun, I didnt mean to say we shouldn't
do it, because
it sounds quite reasonable: but we should explore the options.

For example, as an alternative to multi-pass, a 'less elegant to some' but really practical
way to go about it
can be to 'multiply through' and convert the possibilities to single-pass.

E.g. the typical 'undrinkables' hunspell example: if i have the english inflectional plural
ending -s and the 
derivational ending -able, instead of:
* pass 1: remove inflectional endings (e.g. -s)
* pass 2: remove derivational endings (e.g. -able)

we just take all the pass 2 endings that are compatible with pass 1 endings and cross-multiply,
to make a single
pass algorithm. some won't be compatible, (so we won't combine -able + -s into -ables).

I'm not sure if this is helpful for the norwegian case as I'm not as familiar with it, just
an idea.
