mg query weirdness

Reported by: kjdon Owned by: nobody
Priority: moderate Milestone: Greenstone 2 wishlist
Component: Indexers Severity: minor
Keywords: Cc:


John McP reported this in 2001 on sourceforge. I have tried it again and still the same result.

In greenstone documentation collection on nzdl.org, search for:

search for: mg++ results: Word count: mg: 763 41 documents matched the query.

Search for: "mg++" (ie has quotes around it) results: Word count: mg: 763 post-processed to find "mg++" More than 50 documents matched the query.

Great! a more specific search gets more documents!

Is this a mg problem, or how we deal with mg results?

Actually, if we do an "all" search (above were done as "some" search) for mg++ (no quotes) we get the same result as the quoted search:

Word count: mg: 763 More than 50 documents matched the query.

is this just to do with ranked search being more efficient and not searching all docs?
