Stemmer and Stopping in Hungarian

We provide two stemmers for Hungarian: a light stemmer and a heavy stemmer. The light stemmer is less invasive than the heavy stemmer altering fewer words. It attempts to stem nouns and adjectives. The heavy stemmer also stems verbs and numerals.
Further information on this stemmer can be found on the snowball website.
