Eks Dev commented on LUCENE-2557:

It looks like we have one invariant:
IDF(QueryTerm) >= IDF(Expansion Term) // Preventing better scoring documents with ET then Documents with exact match on QT.

Fixing all expansions to IDF(QT) would remove dynamics of the score, making the contribution to the score for all expansions identical. Maybe proportionally scaling IDF of all expansions to preserve mutual IDF dynamics, (relative to IDF(QT) to keep-up with invariant) would work better?

In case when there is no matching QueryTerm, why not simply preserving expansion Term IDF, what is averaging good for, performance?
FuzzyQuery - fuzzy terms and misspellings are ranked higher than exact matches

Key: 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".
