  PyStemmer provides access to efficient algorithms for calculating a
  "stemmed" form of a word. This is a form with most of the common
  morphological endings removed; hopefully representing a common
  linguistic base form. This is most useful in building search engines
  and information retrieval software; for example, a search with stemming
  enabled should be able to find a document containing "cycling" given the
  query "cycles".
  PyStemmer provides algorithms for several (mainly european) languages,
  by wrapping the libstemmer library from the Snowball project in a Python
  module. It also provides access to the classic Porter stemming algorithm
  for english: although this has been superceded by an improved algorithm,
  the original algorithm may be of interest to information retrieval
  researchers wishing to reproduce results of earlier experiments.
