Subject [greenstone-devel] Something special about the word "statement"?
Hi all,

I ran into a very strange problem with stemming, regarding the word
"statement". With stemming turned on, the word "statement" in a metadata
field will not be found when searching "statements". Similarly, if I
included the word "statements" in the metadata, searching for the word
"statement" will fail. However, countless other words I've tested works
OK. Is there something special about the word "statement"?

If someone can point me to the source code of where this problem may be,
I'll take a look into it.

BTW, I'm running Greenstone 2.52 on Redhat Linux 9.0.

TIA,

Doug
