Solr Stopwords & Synonyms Collection

by Jason on May 22, 2011

As mentioned in my last post, I have been working with Solr extensively for the last few months and I am currently in the process of refining my schema.

This refinement has inevitably lead to me looking into the appropriate stopwords and synonyms for my implementation. A few frustrated searches on Google for other peoples stopwords & synonyms has come up short.

So, instead of giving up, I decided to start my own public Git repository!

https://github.com/ToastedSnow/Solr-Community-Stopwords

I am asking the community to submit their stopwords and synonyms. Feel free to create branches for different languages, different industry implementations (for instance, I can imagine the stop words for a library would differ from the stopwords & synonyms of a Twitter search engine!).

If anyone would like to join this effort and/or have any suggestions to further this discussion I’m all ears!
