23. Support of Stemming. A stemmer for English, for example, should identify the string "cats" (and possibly "catlike", "catty" etc.) as based on the root "cat", and "stemmer", "stemming", "stemmed" as based on "stem". A stemming algorithm reduces the words "fishing", "fished", "fish", and "fisher" to the root word, "fish". So if customers are searching for "fish", it will find all variations like "fishing", "fished", "fisher", and etc.
