Test and analyze Kuromoji Japanese language analyzer
Open, MediumPublic13 Estimated Story Points


User Story: As a user of a Japanese-language wiki, I'd like better language processing than overlapping bigrams. The Kuromoji analyzer might well be up to the task now.

It's been a bit more than five years since we last looked at Kuromoji (T166731). In that time, it has probably gotten better, and I expect my ability to deal with shortcomings in analyzers has also gotten better.*

   * Experience is something you don't get until right after you need it.

Acceptance Criteria:

  • A write up of findings on the Kuromoji analyzer
  • Either...
    • ...include reasons why Kuromoji is unacceptable in the write up, or
    • ...a patch implementing the Kuromoji analyzer

I'm on the fence between 8 & 13 story points (can I say 10?), so I'm going with the bigger number until we talk about it at a later meeting.

Moving this back to the backlog to focus on more straightforward unpacking. CJK analyzer unpacking for Japanese (T326822) is still underway.
