Alemayehu, N. and Willett, P. (2003) The effectiveness of stemming for information retrieval in Amharic. Program, 37 (4). pp. 254-259. ISSN 0033-0337
Amharic is an example of a language with a very rich morphology, which means that systems for searching Amharic text databases can be effective in operation only if full account is taken of the many word variants that may occur. This paper reports a comparison of stem-based and root-based searching of Amharic text with conventional, word-based searching. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of our recently described stemming algorithm for Amharic.
