Problems Indexing/Parsing Tibetan Text
Hello, I'm currently working out some problems when searching for Tibetan
Characters. More specifically: /u0f10-/u0f19. We are using the
StandardAnalyzer (3.4) and I've narrowed the problem down to
StandardTokenizerImpl throwing away these characters i.e. in
getNextToken(), falls through case1: /* Not numeric, word, ideographic,
hiragana, or SE Asian -- ignore it */. So, the question is: is this the
expected behaviour and if it is what would be the best way to go about
supporting code points that are not recognized by the StandardAnalyzer in a
general way?

unicode doesn't consider most of these characters part of a word: most
are punctuation and symbols
(except 0f18 and 0f19 which are combining characters that combine with digits).

for example 0f14 is a text delimiter.

in general standardtokenizer discards punctuation and is geared at
word boundaries, just like
you would have trouble searching on characters like '(', etc in
english. So i think its totally expected.

Thanks Robert. That makes sense. Do you have a link handy where I can
find this information? i.e. word boundary/punctuation for any unicode
character set?

yeah, usually i use
http://unicode.org/cldr/utility/list-unicodeset.jsp?a=[\u0f10-\u0f19]&g=

you can then click on a character and see all of its properties easily.

(site seems to have some issues today)

Another good reference is this one: http://unicode.org/reports/tr29/

Since the latest Lucene uses this for the basis of its text
segmentation, it's worth getting familiar with it.
