Do we handle synonyms and homonyms?
E.g., by hand-constructed equivalence classes
car = automobile color = colour
We can rewrite to form equivalence-class terms
When the document contains automobile, index it under car-automobile (and vice-versa)
Or we can expand a query
When the query contains automobile, look under car as well
What about spelling mistakes?
One approach is soundex, which forms equivalence classes of words based on phonetic heuristics
