Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3915) Add Japanese filter to replace term attribute with readings
Date Sun, 25 Mar 2012 11:11:28 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3915:

The latter option can be useful for certain applications where we'd like to be able to search
by reading and get kanji matches.

These apps can just copy their text to another field with a different analysis chain (particularly
with this filter as-is) and search on both or whatever to get this behavior. This is just
as efficient as adding a bunch of code to do the same thing, but keeps all of our analysis
much simpler.

> Koji and Robert are working on LUCENE-3888 that allows spell-checkers to do their similarity
matching using a different word than its surface form.
> This approach is very useful for languages such as Japanese where the surface form and
the form we'd like to use for similarity matching is very different.  For Japanese, it's useful
to use readings for this -- probably with some normalization.
