Subject stemming irregular plurals?
Date Tue, 29 Jul 2014 14:03:52 GMT

I created an Analyzer with a PorterStemFilter, and I’m searching some test documents.  Normal
plurals work; searching for “zebra” finds text with “zebras”. But searching for “goose”
doesn’t find “geese”.  Is that expected?  Does it give up on irregular English?  Is
there a way to make that work, or a reason that it can’t?
