Subject Stemming behavior
Date Fri, 19 Dec 2008 10:33:33 GMT


I'm using the SnowballAnalyzer for my stemming processing.
search words: love, loved, loveliness, loveless, lovely, and loving

On my index I have the word love. The behavior during searching is that it
can't correctly stem the two words loveliness, loveless to love. And the odd
thing is loveliness is stemmed to "loveli" and loveless is not stemmed at

Does anyone already encountered this and have suggestions on other
