Create a Custom Stem File for a Language

You can override the default stemming rules for certain words in a particular language by creating a language-specific stemming file. This file is a list of words and their stems. If a stemming file exists, the IDOL Content component uses it to stem the terms that it contains. Terms that are not in the file stem according to the default stemming rules.

HPE recommends use of a stemming file only for unusual or specialized terms where the default rules do not generate a stem. A stemming file is not intended to be a complete replacement for the IDOL stemming algorithms.
