Fundamental Linguistics for Search Applications – Why Are Linguistics Important?

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

One important difference between search applications and traditional database applications is the linguistic processing of search engines.

We will explain why linguistics are so important for every search, be it for Solr or Fusion. We will walk through basic approaches - both on the content processing and the query side - and will present search-specific challenges for some of the most important languages based on real world examples.

This allows for providing recommendations on how to successfully deliver a search project where multi-language support is key. Besides methods that are available with open source components, we will give an outlook on integrating commercial linguistic offerings based on a real, multi-language project implementation.
