NAME

KinoSearch::Analysis::Stopalizer - Suppress a "stoplist" of common words.

DEPRECATED

The KinoSearch code base has been assimilated by the Apache Lucy project. The "KinoSearch" namespace has been deprecated, but development continues under our new name at our new home: http://lucy.apache.org/

SYNOPSIS

    my $stopalizer = KinoSearch::Analysis::Stopalizer->new(
        language => 'fr',
    );
    my $polyanalyzer = KinoSearch::Analysis::PolyAnalyzer->new(
        analyzers => [ $case_folder, $tokenizer, $stopalizer, $stemmer ],
    );

DESCRIPTION

A "stoplist" is collection of "stopwords": words which are common enough to be of little value when determining search results. For example, so many documents in English contain "the", "if", and "maybe" that it may improve both performance and relevance to block them.

Before filtering stopwords:

    ( "i", "am", "the", "walrus" ) 

After filtering stopwords:

    ( "walrus" )

Stopalizer provides default stoplists for several languages, courtesy of the Snowball project (<http://snowball.tartarus.org>), or you may supply your own.
