Snowball Analyzer question


(Linton) #1

I'm using the snowball analyzer to stem words but there are a couple of words during testing that are not working well.

If put in Mountain Biking or Mountain Bikes then I end up with Mountain Bike but if put Mountain Biker it gets stored and Mountain Biker not Mountain Bike.

Is there another tokenizer or analyzer I should be using in conjunction with snowball?

Thanks
Todd

I dont think this is the right place to ask that question.
There is porter stem stemmer which is the default one.
Try that one also.

Thanks

Snowball and porter stemmers will not stem 'er' words. If you have a
handful of cases, you can use the stemming override filter to manually
manage the list of words.
