MacFarlane, A. (2003). Pliers and snowball at CLEF 2002. In: Petersen, C., Braschler, M., Gonzalo, J. & Kluck, M. (Eds.), Advances in Cross-Language Information Retrieval. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2785. (pp. 321-335). Berlin: Springer-Verlag. doi: 10.1007/978-3-540-45237-9_27


We test the utility of European language stemmers created using the Snowball language [1]. This allows us to experiment with PLIERS in languages other than English. We also report on some BM25 tuning constant experiments conducted in order to find the best settings for our searches.
