Stem search Analyzer

merav tg asked on May 8, 2016 10:15


I created a search index to a culture that is not supported with stemming. What happens if I set Analyzer type: Simple with stemming? I can save this but what does it really use? same question goes for Stop words with stemming and white space with stemming.

thank you

My guess is it will just do the "Simple Search" and ignore stemming. Kentico usually codes things pretty logically, with future support in mind, so it probably does a check to see if stemming is allowed on the current language.

So you have a choice here and my answer will be similar to what I provided you for "Synonym analyzer".

  1. Default case - When you don't have a Stemming files available - In that case Simple Analyzer with Stemming will not be be to index Stems for the words in your index. For example words like Walk, Walking, and Walker have a common stem "Walk". So searching for Walk will give you results for the other two. However these needs to be part of the index. In absence of which you won't be able to get these results.

  2. Porter Stemmer Algorithm - Using Porter stemmer algorithm you feed in Stemming file for the targeted language and you are done.

This article will help you understand what is an Analyzer, STemmer, Stop Words and other common terminilogies.

Thanks, Chetan
