I have a general question for what we’re meant to do with training recommendations that correct plural searches to singular. See below for an example. The original search term is correct, it’s just pluralized. What is the recommended action here?
- original search term: nebulizers
- Recommendation from training: nebulizers→nebulizer
From my perspective, the search term “nebulizers” and “nebulizer” should return basically the same result set. I can say with a reasonable amount of certainty that the same is true for most other examples like this, i.e., the plural form should operate the same as the singular form. In testing, that’s already the case for “nebulizers” vs. “nebulizer”.
I assume that I’m alright approving these training recommendations. Is there any reason that I shouldn’t?–aside from the rare case where the result sets are different between plural and singular versions of the same word?
