Text Miner Issues

This question is answered

Hi! I am having an issue with text miner. I have two phrases that I would like to combine into one: "additional reserve", and "additional reserves". Initially I thought that statastica would do this automatically because reserves would be a stem word of reserve, but it does not look like stemming is applied to phrases. 

Things I have tried:

1. Combining the two after the fact in the word frequency list. This causes the analysis to crash. 

2. Adding the two phrases to the synonym list. When I try this the synonym disappears from the list after I index the document and the two phrases still appear separately. Is there a certain syntax I need to use to add phrases to the synonym list?

3. Adding just reserve/reserves to the synonym list. This shouldnt be necessary due to stemming but I tried it anyway and it did nothing.  

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
