  Description     : Perl interface to Snowball stemmers

Stemming reduces related words to a common root form. For instance,
"horse", "horses", and "horsing" all become "hors". Most commonly,
stemming is deployed as part of a search application, allowing searches
for a given term to match documents which contain other forms of that

This module is very similar to Lingua::Stem -- however, Lingua::Stem
is pure Perl, while Lingua::Stem::Snowball is an XS module which
provides a Perl interface to the C version of the Snowball stemmers.
