Hi all ,
I'm new to zebra , and using it in "koha" ILS

in the Arabic language there is some letter come before the words or after
them these letters we don't need to index in our index
I will give you an example :
in English we can say : the car...
in Arabic the same is : السيارة
if you note that the letter in Red is "the" and it's ignored in English
search  but in Arabic search we need the zebra to find every record that
have " the word " or just "word" الكلمة or كلمة

so how to define that to zebra

thanks a lot
