Subject Re: getting different search results for words with same meaning in Japanese language
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2013 01:27:39 GMT
The MappingCharFilter allows you to map both characters to one
characters. If you do this during indexing and querying, searching with
one should find the other. This is sort of like synonyms, but on a
character-by-character basis.
