Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-2557:
-------------------------------------

so here is an option for this issue. we could reword the whole issue as 'improve FuzzyQuery defaults'.

If we were to do this, i would suggest the following at the minimum:
* instead of a default distance of 0.5 (from queryparser), if distance isnt provided (~0.6 etc), calculate one that will perform well and never brute-force compare all the terms.
* instead of a default max expansions of booleanquery max clause count (1024), use a more reasonable # of expansions by default (such as 50)
* instead of the current rewrite, use a rewrite similar to FuzzyLikeThis. maybe we dont need to average docfreq across all 50 terms even, maybe the top-5 or so is sufficient.

If we were to do something like this, maybe we could improve performance and behavior instead of making tradeoffs.

FuzzyQuery - fuzzy terms and misspellings are ranked higher than exact matches

Key: LUCENE-2557
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2557
Project: Lucene - Java
Issue Type: Bug
Components: Query/Scoring
Affects Versions: 3.0.2
Reporter: Jingkei Ly
Attachments: idf-scoring-test-case.patch, LUCENE-2557.patch


The FuzzyQuery often causes misspellings to be ranked higher than the exact match, which seems to be an undesirable property generally.
For example, in an index of surnames, if I search using a FuzzyQuery for "smith", the misspellings such as "smiith", or "smiht" would appear near the top of the search results ahead of documents that match "smith".
