Thanks for your reply. It would be great if this feature were integrated in to the annotator. Some users have been asking us why the annotator doesn't find things they expect it to, so it's good to have a response to this. I understand why you do it the way you do but I'd assume that an indexing system such as Lucene could help improve the speed for these types of lookups.

The dictionary that the Annotator uses is based on the preferred names and synonyms of ontology terms and there has to be an exact match in the input text to the dictionary term to return a match .. good for speed of annotation but does not handle term variations in the matching step unless the variation is included in the ontology itself.
> Last I talked with the developers of the entity recognizer that the Annotator uses, called Mgrep, they have developed some methods to account for term permutations and there was an interest to collect use cases to test further. I have included Fan Meng in this response in case this is of interest to pursue further.
