Subject Newbie synonyms question
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2006 00:52:10 GMT
Sorry if this question has already been answered, but it is regarding

I am using the WordNet/Synonyms index and using the following algorithm
to create synonym searches (this is a dumbed down version):

Look up a the "base" word in the synonym index
In my search string, replace all instances of the base word with
"(synonym1 | synonym 2 | ... | synonym n)"
Use this new search string against my search index

1)  Is there an easier / more efficient way to go about this?
2)  Does Lucene have any built-in capability to handle synonyms?  For
example, can I point it to the synonym index and let Lucene perform all
the work of synonym lookup / replacement?

Thanks in advance,

Andrew Lee
