Lingua::LA::Stemmer - Stemmer for Latin
use Lingua::LA::Stemmer; Lingua::LA::Stemmer::stem(\@words); # or Lingua::LA::Stemmer::stem(@words);
This is a coarse stemming package for latin language. Words are filtered according to the following steps.
- o converting 'j' or 'v' to 'i' or 'u'
- o removing -que
- o matching the end of word against the noun or adjective suffixes
- o matching the end of word against the verb suffixes
Of course, it's not perfect. Any suggestion is always welcomed to better this package.
