Sorry, but Solr synonym processing does not know about wildcards, so it is 
bypassed when a wildcard is present.

Technically, it could probably be enhanced to support them, at least for 
some common special cases such as yours, but that prospect won't help you 
right now.

Your best bet is to preprocess your queries in your application layer and 
perform the mapping there.

Subject: Synonyms with wildcard search

Hello All,

I want to know whether it is possible to make a query of word which has

For example :  I have one field which is type of text_en (default fieldType
in 4.3.1)
And synonym.txt file has this entry
colour => color

Now when I am using full text search as colour* (with wild card) then
search result is not returning the keyword of type colorology... (as in
case If I use color* then I am getting this word)

So any suggestions as how I can achieve this Or its not possible.
