Apostrophe token filteredit

Strips all characters after an apostrophe, including the apostrophe itself.

This filter is included in Elasticsearch’s built-in Turkish language analyzer. It uses Lucene’s ApostropheFilter, which was built for the Turkish language.


The following analyze API request demonstrates how the apostrophe token filter works.

GET /_analyze
  "tokenizer" : "standard",
  "filter" : ["apostrophe"],
  "text" : "Istanbul'a veya Istanbul'dan"

The filter produces the following tokens:

[ Istanbul, veya, Istanbul ]
