<h2 id='Description'><img src="../images/redarrow.gif" />Description</h2>
<div class="section-content">
<p>The project was started in 2010 since we couldn't find any
high-quality, actively maintained and easy-to-use Java-based
Japanese morphological analyzers, and these become many of our
design goals for Kuromoji.
Kuromoji also has a segmentation mode that
is particularly useful for
search, which we hope will interest Apache
Lucene and Solr users.
Compound-nouns, such as 関西国際空港 (Kansai
International Airport) and
日本経済新聞 (Nikkei Newspaper), are segmented
as one token with most
analyzers. As a result, a search for 空港
(airport) or 新聞 (newspaper)
will not give you a for in these words.
Kuromoji can segment these
words into 関西 国際 空港 and 日本 経済 新聞, which is
generally what you would
want for search and you'll get a hit.
The
target was to make sure the technology has a license that makes it
compatible with other Apache Software Foundation software to
maximize its usefulness. Kuromoji has an Apache License 2.0 and all
code is currently owned by Atilika Inc. The software has been
developed by Masaru Hasegawa and
Christian Moen.</p>
