property is used to enable stemming and to define the language used for stemming in a full-text index defined through programming.
The stemming is used to perform searches on a full-text index while taking the variations of a given word into account. This feature is not interesting for the knowledge databases and it allows you fo indifferently find words in singular or plural form.

Language for stemming:
- The management of synonyms (Synonym) must not be enabled if the stemming is enabled.
- The management of accented characters (AccentSensitive) must be enabled if the stemming is enabled.
- Because of grammatical exceptions (irregular verbs in English, verbs of third group in French, etc.), some conjugations may not be grouped together (for example, a search for "fly" will not found the records containing "flown") or some plural forms may not be grouped with their singular form (foot/feet for example).
