Classic token filteredit

Performs optional post-processing of terms generated by the classic tokenizer.

This filter removes the english possessive ('s) from the end of words and removes dots from acronyms. It uses Lucene’s ClassicFilter.


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

GET /_analyze
  "tokenizer" : "classic",
  "filter" : ["classic"],
  "text" : "The 2 Q.U.I.C.K. Brown-Foxes jumped over the lazy dog's bone."

The filter produces the following tokens:

[ The, 2, QUICK, Brown, Foxes, jumped, over, the, lazy, dog, bone ]
