Package Description


Stemming offers a simpler alternative to lemmatization. Stemming also attempts to reduce a word to a base form by removing affixes, but the resulting stem is not necessarily a proper lemma. Such stems can be useful in information retrieval applications.

All MorphAdorner stemmers must implement the Stemmer interface. The StemmerFactory provides the mechanism for instantiating a default or specified instance of a stemmer implementation.

Stemmers can also be used as pseudo-lemmatizers. See the package.

Two widely used stemmers are included in MorphAdorner.
