Subject Re: Need idea to standardize keywords - ring tone vs ringtone

Do you know about the Solr synonym feature?  That seems more applicable 
to what you're describing then stopwords. I'd stay away from stopwords 
entirely here, and try to do what you want with synonyms.

Multi-word synonyms can be tricky, I'm not entirely sure the right way 
to do it for this use case. But I think the synonym feature is what you 
want. Not the stopwords feature.
