Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3883) Analysis for Irish

Jim Regan commented on LUCENE-3883:
-----------------------------------

Great :)

Regarding the initial 'h', I asked Kevin Scannell (among other feathers in his cap, he created
the dictionary used in GaelSpell, and ran an Irish-language search engine), who said: 
"I looked carefully at how often initial h is a prefix vs not a while ago.  I can send you
those data - non-prefixes might be more common than you'd think in running text bc of proper
names, English mixed in, etc.  So upshot is it's a bad idea to strip all initial h's with
no hyphen following. 
  As far as h- (with hyphen) goes, it's non-standard but common enough that I'd leave it in
the stemmer.   Not like there would be false positives in that case if the hyphen is there.'
