Subject Re: FuzzyQuery with short words

I think so?  The default prefixLength is 0 ...

Just make sure you're not hitting the maxExpansions limit (default is
50).  Ie, if your index has many other terms within edit distance 2 of
"ab" or edit distance 1 of "x" then then may cause your example "abcd"
to rank below the top 50, and be pruned.
