Create a Stemming Exception List - Legacy

As of the 18.1 release, using the Search Dictionaries Dashboard is the preferred. This legacy method is still functional, but will be phased out in future releases.

  1. Select site > Merchant Tools > Search > Stemming Exceptions.
    A message appears on this page indicating if the site is configured for regional locales to inherit the linguistic rules defined for their language locale. You can change the setting on the Search Preferences page.
  2. To search for a stemming exception, enter a keyword, select a locale, and click Find.
    If you leave the Keyword field blank and click Find, all stemming exceptions for the selected locale show.
  3. Enter a term that you want to exclude and click Apply.
    For example, Enter the term leggings as a stemming exception, and leggings in the Keep term as field.
