A grad student asks (name omitted):
Dear Dr. Garcia,
I’m interested in developing a Porter Stemmer for the Irish language.
Would it be possible to send me your lecture notes for Porter Stemmer
development from your graduate course?
I am doing an MSc thesis on developing a search engine for TEI marked up
multilingual texts and hope to use Apache Lucene as a basis.
Thanks for any help,
UCC, Cork, Ireland.
Thank you for reading this blog and for emailing me, but I normally don’t release lecture notes. However, the lecture was based on Martin Porter’s site, which can be accessed by visiting the following link:

For stemmers in other languages, check the Snowball site:
The great thing about the Porter stemmer is that it has been written in many programming flavors and languages.
