[Xapian-discuss] Question on how to handle some bad result from stem algorithm?

When using Stem library, it works well in most case,

however we also notice some bad result caused by stem, some examples are:

Community, communication and communicator can be searched by each other,
though we thought they are not same,

Anime, animal, animated can be searched by each other

What's the thought? is any good way to avoid this?
Is any other equivalent algorithm but simple?

Thanks very much for advice,

Bruce Zhang
