Query tokenization on '

In Bordeaux, France(, Europe), there is a point called "Barrière d'Ornano". When I search for "Ornano, Bordeaux", I get no result but when I search for "d'Ornano, Bordeaux", it works.

The correct way to tokenize this in french would be to split on the single quote after "d".

If I try to translate that in english, the point is called "Gate of Ornano". There is a good chance that people type only the proper name "Ornano" and not the full name. If things were simpe in french, we would write "Barrière de Ornano" but there is a contraction here so it becomes "Barrière d'Ornano".
