[Corion]: choroba: :-D
[Corion]: And yes, at least the basic implementation is to strip off some prepositions ("the", "a", "an") from the term with regular expressions and then do a regex match ;-)
[Corion]: So that could become a fun series of articles that implement this with regular expressions, Parse::Eyapp, Marpa, YACC, Perl6 and Regexp::Grammar and whatnot. If I have a test suite, I could even do benchmarks.
[Corion]: I guess part of the fun will be to add all those optional prepositions etc. to the grammar, whereas that is easy with regular expressions :)
