Questions about Term Combination

CorText Manager Q&A forumCategory: Text processingQuestions about Term Combination
Kelsey asked 5 years ago

We have questions about the term combination process when we are trying to do the list indexer. We tried to combine terms (and also delete some terms) that we believe are similar (or not be appropriate to include in the analysis) manually, but the results turn out to be messed up. So we are wondering if there is a way to do the combination using CorText programming.

Dear Kelsey, 
are you refering to the “term indexation” script ? 
If yes, then you can easily combine several equivalent forms for a given term concatenating them according to the following syntax in the third column:
e.g. for the term woman, you could type woman|&|women in the third column and both the singular and plural form will be indexed as woman.
Does it answer your question ?
