    Portuguese language stemming in Oracle 11g Text

      Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production
      PL/SQL Release - Production

      Oracle Text

      We use Oracle text to index tables containing terminology in 100+ languages one of which is Portuguese. I have been asked by one of our Portuguese linguistics specialists what "version" of the Portuguese language is used in the Portuguese stemmer. Apparently there have been some changes to the official spelling of this language during the the recent past and they want to know if these have been incorporated in the 11g stemmer for Portuguese or not.

      I am not a linguistics expert (by any means) however, I believe the same applies to both French and German but as these changes are considerably older, I have assumed that they will have been incorporated already.

      If anyone out there has info on this subject or knows where I can find such info, I would be very grateful.
