StmSrch is a reverse-stem searching script. It implements the Porter stemming algorithm, by Martin Porter. It also handles irregular verbs and noun pluralizations.
This script can be useful for searching or scanning through corpus files.
Each word input to the :StmSrch command will be stemmed and then formulated in such a way as to match possible conjugations or pluralizations. Without
any word given for input, it will attempt to stem the current word under the cursor. The matching is done using word boundaries so not just any substring will match.
- :StmSrch searcher
will match any of:
- search, searching, searches, searchers, searched, ...
and a string of words will work as well, matching in order:
- :StmSrch thieves are running from bunnies
will match strings of word
