NAME

       ALTER  TEXT  SEARCH DICTIONARY - change the definition of a text search
       dictionary

SYNOPSIS

       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY name (
           option [ = value ] [, ... ]
       )
       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY name RENAME TO newname
       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY name OWNER TO newowner

DESCRIPTION

       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY changes the definition of  a  text  search
       dictionary.  You can change the dictionary’s template-specific options,
       or change the dictionary’s name or owner.

       You must be the owner of  the  dictionary  to  use  ALTER  TEXT  SEARCH
       DICTIONARY.

PARAMETERS

       name   The  name  (optionally  schema-qualified)  of  an  existing text
              search dictionary.

       option The name of a  template-specific  option  to  be  set  for  this
              dictionary.

       value  The  new  value  to  use for a template-specific option.  If the
              equal sign and value are omitted, then any previous setting  for
              the  option is removed from the dictionary, allowing the default
              to be used.

       newname
              The new name of the text search dictionary.

       newowner
              The new owner of the text search dictionary.

       Template-specific options can appear in any order.

EXAMPLES

       The following example command changes the stopword list for a Snowball-
       based dictionary. Other parameters remain unchanged.

       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_dict ( StopWords = newrussian );

       The following example command changes the language option to dutch, and
       removes the stopword option entirely.

       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_dict ( language = dutch, StopWords );

       The following example command ‘‘updates’’ the  dictionary’s  definition
       without actually changing anything.

       ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY my_dict ( dummy );

       (The reason this works is that the option removal code doesn’t complain
       if there is no  such  option.)  This  trick  is  useful  when  changing
       configuration  files  for the dictionary: the ALTER will force existing
       database sessions to re-read the configuration files,  which  otherwise
       they would never do if they had read them earlier.

COMPATIBILITY

       There is no ALTER TEXT SEARCH DICTIONARY statement in the SQL standard.
