Subject Re: Always spellcheck (suggest)
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 04:54:12 GMT
I am really surprised that a query for "behaviour" returns "behavior" as 
a suggestion only when the parameter "spellcheck.onlyMorePopular=true" 
is present. I re-read the documentation and I see nothing that will 
imply that the parameter onlyMorePopular will do anything else but 
filter the suggestions solr will return.

Maybe somebody else can shed some light on this.

'behavior' will not suggest 'behaviour' however because it is less popular.

the only way to return suggestions when all of the search terms are present in the dictionary
(ie. correct)? Is there any way to force behaviour (1) without behaviour (2) (filtering on
frequency).

spell checking is not run when results are found. 2) It limits suggestions to terms with higher
frequencies.

usage. Eg. The user searches 'behaviour', we want it to suggest US spelling 'behavior' and
vice versa. At the moment, the suggestion only works one way.
