Subject RE: Lucene shows parts of search query as a HIT
Date Thu, 19 Jul 2007 08:25:12 GMT
Hello Askar,

Which analyzer are you using for indexing and searching? If you use an analyzer that uses
stemming, you might see that "change", "changing", "changed", "chan" etc al get reduced to
the same word "chan".

In luke you can test with plugins that show you what tokens are created from your analyzer,

Regards Ard
