What is your use case? If you don't have a specific use case in mind, try 
each of them with some common words that you expect will or won't be 
stemmed. If you have Solr, you can experiment interactively using the Solr 
Admin Analysis web page.

It would be nice if the javadoc for each stemmer gave a handful of examples 
that illustrated how some common words are stemmed.

Subject: Which stemmer?

Does anyone have any experience with the stemmers?  I know that Porter is 
what "everyone" uses.  Am I better off with KStemFilter (better performance) 
or ??  Does anyone understand the differences between the various stemmers 
and how to choose one over another?
