Sorry about that, I made it uppercase to emphasize it.  The word was just "examined"

Was the "MINE" in "exaMINEd" actually uppercase, or did you do that
for emphasis?

If it was actually uppercased, one could argue it is a relevant
document since someone was trying to get "MINE" to stand out for some

Anyway, if you don't want that behavior then turn off splitting on case change.
splitOnCaseChange="0" in WordDelimiterFilterFactory
