Stemming algorithms written in Java
Stemming algorithms written in Java. Snowball is a small string processing language for creating stemming algorithms for use in Information Retrieval, plus a collection of stemming algorithms implemented using it. Snowball was originally designed and built by Martin Porter. Martin retired from development in 2014 and Snowball is now maintained as a community project. Martin originally chose the name Snowball as a tribute to SNOBOL, the excellent string handling language from the 1960s. It now also serves as a metaphor for how the project grows by gathering contributions over time. Algorithms are available for the following languages: - Arabic - Armenian - Basque - Catalan - Danish - Dutch - English (Standard, Porter) - Finnish - French - German - Greek - Hindi - Hungarian - Indonesian - Irish - Italian - Lithuanian - Nepali - Norwegian - Portuguese - Romanian - Russian - Serbian - Spanish - Swedish - Tamil - Turkish - Yiddish
