Hi, I have problem with parsing a text query like this "state-of-the-art -exspensive" where all of the hyphens are handled as NOT short cuts. So I get text:state -text:art -text:exspensive where I ideally would get text:state-of-the-art -text:exspensive, but turning off shortcut syntaxing all together could possibly be acceptable.
Please help me out here, just some hints to where the answer is will also be appreciated.

I am guessing that you are using a QueryParser which does this kind of substitution. Can you construct the queries directly, by using a BooleanQuery of two Terms which are joined by "AND NOT"? Or do you need it to be more general than that?
