Simple analyzeredit

The simple analyzer breaks text into tokens at any non-letter character, such as numbers, spaces, hyphens and apostrophes, discards non-letter characters, and changes uppercase to lowercase.


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

The simple analyzer parses the sentence and produces the following tokens:

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


The simple analyzer is defined by one tokenizer:


To customize the simple analyzer, duplicate it to create the basis for a custom analyzer. This custom analyzer can be modified as required, usually by adding token filters.
