  • Purpose – The automatic removal of suffixes from words in English is of particular interest in the field of information retrieval. This work was originally published in Program in 1980 and is republished as part of a series of articles commemorating the 40th anniversary of the journal. Design/methodology/approach – An algorithm for suffix stripping is described, which has been implemented as a short, fast program in BCPL. Findings – Although simple, it performs slightly better than a much more… CONTINUE READING
