I would have written a shorter comment, but I did not have the time.

I'm part of the Search Platform team and I spend my time working on search & relevance, trying to better support search in various languages, analyzing queries, and doing random mathy things. I tend to write long, detailed notes about my investigations (so as to improve the bus number of my work).

When I have to work on _GitHub,_ /‍‍/Phab,/‍‍/ and ''MediaWiki'' all on the same day, I sometimes suffer Severe Markup Incongruence Fatigue.

I � Unicode.

TJones added a comment to T197890: Re-index Mirandese Wikis.

Reindexing is done, and test searches show that it is working—e.g., acesso, l'acesso, d'acesso, and qu'acesso all return the same documents (though ordered differently because the plain field finds exact matching and influences ranking.)

Short answer: Add a redirect from - to the appropriate page to solve the problem. (I'd do it, but English Wikipedia distinguishes hyphen and hyphen-minus, and I don't read Farsi, so I can't figure out the right redirect to add.)

I took a closer look at the Vabamorf repository, and it was more complex than my earlier survey revealed. The core of it is in C++ and the Java integration is just a JNI wrapper. Based on discussions with @Gehel and @dcausse, the complexities of any JNI implementation—some of which include the lack of multi-architecture support, increased complexity of garbage collection, and the need to punch holes in standard Elastic security—make it a non-starter. The code itself is also very complicated and does not look to be readily ported to Java.

Since Erik gathered all the regex search data and shared it with me, I couldn't help myself and I did a quick survey of it and put it in the usual place on MediaWiki. Three patterns of searches account for almost 94% of regex searches—interwiki links, URLs, and Library of Congress collection IDs.

TJones added a comment to T195447: Lexical Data user scenario: Exporting Lexical Data to create morphology and stemming for search engines.

Thanks for this ticket, @Amire80! I've been thinking about building a tool to scrape lexical info from Wiktionary in order to feed it into a statistical model to build stemmers for languages that don't have them. Getting it from Wikibase would probably be a lot easier. I'm not sure whether an API would be able to keep up with the rate required for stemming while indexing wikis, but it would still be an awesome tool overall for other stemming applications that have lower throughput requirements. (An induced stemmer model, whether statistical or rule-based, would also be able to handle novel forms.)
