Stop Analyzer

The stop analyzer is the same as the simple analyzer but adds support for removing stop words. It defaults to using the _english_ stop words.

Definition

It consists of:

Tokenizer
Token filters

Example output

POST _analyze
{
  "analyzer": "stop",
  "text": "The 2 QUICK Brown-Foxes jumped over the lazy dog's bone."
}

The above sentence would produce the following terms:

[ quick, brown, foxes, jumped, over, lazy, dog, s, bone ]

Configuration

The stop analyzer accepts the following parameters:

stopwords

A pre-defined stop words list like _english_ or an array containing a list of stop words. Defaults to _english_.

stopwords_path

The path to a file containing stop words.

See the Stop Token Filter for more information about stop word configuration.

Example configuration

In this example, we configure the stop analyzer to use a specified list of words as stop words:

PUT my_index
{
  "settings": {
    "analysis": {
      "analyzer": {
        "my_stop_analyzer": {
          "type": "stop",
          "stopwords": ["the", "over"]
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

POST my_index/_analyze
{
  "analyzer": "my_stop_analyzer",
  "text": "The 2 QUICK Brown-Foxes jumped over the lazy dog's bone."
}

The above example produces the following terms:

[ quick, brown, foxes, jumped, lazy, dog, s, bone ]
