I am? testing SOLR as a replacement for my existing search technology but I am dissatisfied with Porter stemming which has well documented failings.
(e.g. organ = organization)
I know of one other English stemmer (Kstem) which has sucessfully been implemented with SOLR but I was unable to get Kstem to work with SOLR.
I would like to receive bids to implement Kstem or any other good English stemmer with SOLR. If you know of a good stemmer please suggest it as I am willing to compare stemming technologies.
The stemming algorithm that I will be able to use will provide stems for plurals (boys = boy) including a method to stem irregular plurals (children = child) without the negatives associated with Porter stemming which is too agressive for my purposes.
