no spelling suggestions with language:en? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    It seems that no spelling suggestions are provided when the query includes the search term "language:en".   For example, the query:


    gets a spelling suggestion, but the query:

            comming language:en

    does not.  Here are the URLs of the API requests:



    Is this a bug?

  • After a little digging, it is actually an unintended side effect of an optimization in the spell-checker that has been in the codebase for a long time.
    The fix is not completely trivial, but we are looking at what we can do to deliver this in a reasonable timeframe.

    In the meantime though, queries that contain any operator in the form <operator>:, like site:, language:, loc:, will not be able to trigger a spelling suggestion.

    Sorry for not being more helpful.
