Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-8028) Arabic Stemmer improvement for Better Search Accuracy
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2017 13:09:00 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-8028:

Hi, we should add it as an option! It is ok to have multiple stemmers (choices).

I think we should be conservative about changing the default: at least for the second paper
(which isn't paywalled, so i could quickly look), this appears to incorporate a dictionary-based
approach (domain-dependent, typically perform less well on average than rule-based due to
OOV) and i don't yet see any standard IR experiments confirming the improvement.
