Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2102) LowerCaseFilter for Turkish language
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2009 22:53:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2102?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12784496#action_12784496

Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-2102:
---------------------------------------

Robert: I understand your problem, but it affects LowerCaseFilter at all and is not special
to the Turkish lower filter. If you have decomposed characters even LowerCaseFilter would
fail for *all* languages (even German if you compose รค out of a and two dots). In germany
really nobody uses composed chars, I do not lknow how this is in Turkey, but the last time
I was there, they just used the simpliest composed chars (like germans). And for that this
filter works and is a quick fix.

But I give up now.

> java.lang.Character.toLowerCase() converts 'I' to 'i' however in Turkish alphabet lowercase
of 'I' is not 'i'. It is LATIN SMALL LETTER DOTLESS I.
