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

Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3883:
-------------------------------------

Thanks for updating the patch Jim!

one concern doing some very very rudimentary testing:

we have special lowercasing for situations like nAthair -> n-athair,

which the snowball rules then strip:

{noformat}
define initial_morph as (
  [substring] among (
    'h-' 'n-' 't-' //nAthair -> n-athair, but alone are problematic
    (delete)
{noformat}

The problem is if the input initially comes as n-athair, Unicode break rules
will split this up on the hyphen into two tokens {n, athair}. You can visualize this at http://unicode.org/cldr/utility/breaks.jsp

This means we can add many spurious 'n' tokens in the index...

So we have two potential solutions to this:
# we can simply add 'n', 'h', 't', etc to the stopwords list. This is the simplest solution.
Would this be too aggressive?
# we can add a CharFilter for IrishAnalyzer to prevent this splitting from happening. This
is more complex.
