Results with Word Stemming enabled

Aug 25, 2008 at 10:04 PM
I have been using Faceted Search to display a summary of search results grouped by a meta data item (instrument type).

I have noticed that when Word Stemming is turned on in the core results web part, that the count of hits in the faceted search web part is incorrect. Further investigation shows that the count matches the work submitted and excludes all "stemming" matches. IT would appear that the faceted search doe snot take account of word stemming. Is it possible for this to be included?

Eg:  Search on "run" and get 153 results returned while faceted search shows a total of 90 hits.

Either turn off work stemming or use advanced search to run the same query and I get 90 results returned which matches the faceted search results.

Using the same process with the word "ran" I get 153 results in the core results with faceted search returning only 9 hits which again matches the number of hits on the work "ran" if using advanced search.

Thanks for this post. The issue will be investigated and worked on.
