Subject Indexing synonyms for multiple words
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 14:13:58 GMT

I'm fairly new to Lucene. I'd like to know how we can index synonyms for
multiple words.

This is the scenario:

Consider a sentence: AAA BBB WORD1 WORD2 EEE FFF GGG.

Now assume the two words combined WORD1 WORD2 can be replaced by another
word SYN.

If I place SYN after WORD1 with positionIncrement set to 0, WORD2 will
follow SYN,
which is incorrect; and the other way round if I place it after WORD2.

If any of you have solved a similar problem, I'd be thankful if you could
share some light on
the solution.
