Subject How to include a multi-word synonym to a word when indexing?
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2005 13:36:01 GMT
According to "Lucene in Action" it is possible to get synonyms indexed 
together with a word by putting multiple words with the same position-id in 
the term vector.

My problem is, however, that some words needs to have alternatives where the 
word is decomposed / decompounded into two or more words:

"FooBar Corp" or "cybercafe"

should be found when searching for

"Foo Ba*" or "cyber cafe"

The reverse is also true: The "Foo Bar Corp" should be found with "Foob* 

So how do I solve this problem?
