I tried to be adept and avoid answering those parts because I know
very little about it. It looks like you do some stemming of words to
find their stem and then you index those. But I don't know what you do
to achieve it. If you pick a language, like english there are probably
two ways to go: 1. Form a set of rules and apply those rules to
"normalize"/"canonicalize"/"extract-the-stem". 2. Play the google
game: If you have enough data to mine statistically, figure out what
the stems are via machine learning.

Historically, judging by papers at AI/ML conferences, it looks like
option 2 wins :P
