You could instead up the termpos between each of them, so you don't
end up with junk terms in your database.

Of course, you might want to enable phrase searching across these
things, in which case you want to (say) index "excite" at the same
termpos as "m'excite". That would require some more smarts in your
indexing, however, and probably can't be done with preprocessing.
