Yes, I was doing some very rudimentary stemming in my text parsing for
specific cases, but I was still undecided as some of the other texts
I've mapped have interesting usage patterns with the stems left as is.
I've just had a quick google and found the standard Porter Stemming
Algorithm written in Python by Vivake Gupta, I'll plug it in and see
how it goes ? mail list and wiki type texts are probably less 'edited'
and more noisy than the other texts I've been experimenting with :-)
