Lucy::Analysis::PolyAnalyzer - Multiple Analyzers in series.


my $schema = Lucy::Plan::Schema->new;
my $polyanalyzer = Lucy::Analysis::PolyAnalyzer->new( 
    analyzers => \@analyzers,
my $type = Lucy::Plan::FullTextType->new(
    analyzer => $polyanalyzer,
$schema->spec_field( name => 'title',   type => $type );
$schema->spec_field( name => 'content', type => $type );


A PolyAnalyzer is a series of Analyzers, each of which will be called upon to “analyze” text in turn. You can either provide the Analyzers yourself, or you can specify a supported language, in which case a PolyAnalyzer consisting of a CaseFolder, a RegexTokenizer, and a SnowballStemmer will be generated for you.

The language parameter is DEPRECATED. Use EasyAnalyzer instead.

Supported languages:

en => English,
da => Danish,
de => German,
es => Spanish,
fi => Finnish,
fr => French,
hu => Hungarian,
it => Italian,
nl => Dutch,
no => Norwegian,
pt => Portuguese,
ro => Romanian,
ru => Russian,
sv => Swedish,
tr => Turkish,



my $tokenizer    = Lucy::Analysis::StandardTokenizer->new;
my $normalizer   = Lucy::Analysis::Normalizer->new;
my $stemmer      = Lucy::Analysis::SnowballStemmer->new( language => 'en' );
my $polyanalyzer = Lucy::Analysis::PolyAnalyzer->new(
    analyzers => [ $tokenizer, $normalizer, $stemmer, ], );

Create a new PolyAnalyzer.

  • language - An ISO code from the list of supported languages. DEPRECATED, use EasyAnalyzer instead.
  • analyzers - An array of Analyzers. The order of the analyzers matters. Don’t put a SnowballStemmer before a RegexTokenizer (can’t stem whole documents or paragraphs – just individual words), or a SnowballStopFilter after a SnowballStemmer (stemmed words, e.g. “themselv”, will not appear in a stoplist). In general, the sequence should be: tokenize, normalize, stopalize, stem.



my $arrayref = $poly_analyzer->get_analyzers();

Getter for “analyzers” member.


my $inversion = $poly_analyzer->transform($inversion);

Take a single Inversion as input and returns an Inversion, either the same one (presumably transformed in some way), or a new one.

  • inversion - An inversion.
