Subject Reverse stemmer?
Date Tue, 06 Oct 2009 07:31:36 GMT


I've been using Lucene in a very basic way for some time now, and I'm  
starting to take advantage of some of the linguistic capabilities only  

I am making use of the snowball analyzer for stemming, and it works  
very well.

Question: is there any such thing as a "reverse stemmer"? In other  
words, given the stem of a word, is there any algorithm to find the  
original word? Or is this just fantasy? ;-)

Now, I understand that there is a 1:n mapping of stems:words. I can  
deal with that.
