Hello everybody !
I'm french, i use the mediawiki for myself.
I have trouble with it:
i made a page "la Manoeuvre d'ortolani"
i wrote some words:
"la manoeuvre d'ortolani est destinée à tester la hanche des nourissons"
well, ok, it's in french ;-)
the big bad trouble is:
when i search the word ORTOLANI, the mediawiki find ... nothing because for
"D'Ortolani" is ONE WORD but in french "D'ortolani" is a contraction of TWO WORDS
"DE + ORTOLANI" = "D'ORTOLANI"
I'm tired to modified all the page by writing this for trying to correct this:
"Manoeuvre d'ortolani (ortolani)"
could you try to fix it ?
sorry my english is ... bad really.
The search engine use mysql Full-Text search engine, according to
the documentation  the apostrophe ' and underscore _ are considered
as part of the word.
The bug got fixed in mysql 5.1.6 
Marking bug as
 MySQL bug report : http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=14194
That's MySQL fulltext. Wikimedia doesn't use that, so I doubt the bug was filed
with that in mind. This should be filed against Lucene, presumably. I don't
know if this is fixable on our end, though?
Lucene doesn't have this problem. reclosing.

This bug is still here
For example : https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ASearch&profile=default&search=Arc-en-Ciel&fulltext=Search "Arc-en-Ciel" doesn't match any "L'Arc-en-Ciel" (with L') directly.
Compare with a search "L'Arc-en-Ciel" https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=L%27Arc-en-Ciel&title=Special%3ASearch&fulltext=1
The "L'" should not be a part of the word, its another word.
Akeron: Could you please file a new bug report? This one got closed six years ago and nowadays issues for this problem to happen again are likely different. Thanks!
