Subject Plural word search
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2007 16:52:15 GMT

I'm evaluating Lucene as a full-text search engine for a project. I got one 
of the requirements as following:

4) Plural Literal Search
If you use the plural of a term such as bears the results will include 
matches to the plural term bears as well as the singular term bear.

it seems to me we need to build a dictionary to support it. Does Lucene 
support it?

appreciate your help.
