Subject Use of synonyms or thesaurus
Date Tue, 07 Nov 2017 12:09:23 GMT
I have been trialling search as a replacement for SQL Full Text. What is the best
way to go about replicating the SQL Thesaurus facility in Lucene - we currently use both expansion
and replacement sets in our SQL Thesaurus for both single words and short phrases.

We have a few scenarios such as where something can be known by similar but slightly differently
spelled terms - e.g. :

lawn mower

Or also by slightly more differing terms - e.g. :

cordless drill
cordless combi
combi drill

Our data contains lots of names of items that can be known as several other things so this
facility for synonyms is very important.
