Subject Re: Phrase query with terms at same location
Date Thu, 19 Nov 2009 13:35:13 GMT
If I'm reading this right, your tokenizer creates two tokens. One
"report" and one "_n"... I suspect if so that this will create some
behaviors. For instance, if you put two tokens in place, are you going
to double the slop when you don't care about part of speech? Is every
word going to get a marker? etc.

I'm not sure payloads would be useful here, but you might check it out...

What I'd think about, though, is a variant of synonyms. That is, index
report and report_n (note no space) at the same location. Then, when
you wanted to create a part-of-speech-aware query, you'd attach the
various markers to your terms (_n, _v, _adj, _adv etc.) and not have to
worry about unexpected side-effects.
