Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-3980) Word order seems to affect proximity searching
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 15:34:17 GMT
Word order seems to affect proximity searching

                 Key: LUCENE-3980
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: core/search
            Reporter: Ian Pooley
            Priority: Minor

It would appear that the order of words within a search query affects a proximity search.

For instance, for the text "The proximity operator seems to match differently based on word
order", a match is found for "proximity order"~8 but is not found for "order proximity"~8.
In order for the latter to find a match, it needs to be changed to "order proximity"~10.

Both the text and the query are processed using org.apache.lucene.analysis.standard.StandardAnalyzer.
