Nominatim doesn't find street names without number

The problem occurs in all applications using nominatim. If only a streetname is given in the city of berne, it doesnt find it.

e.g. "Birkenweg Bern" -> doesn't find the Street "Birkenweg" in the City of Berne. It only finds other Birkenweg in other villages. If I type "Birkenweg 61 Bern" it finds "61, Birkenweg, Bern"(in the city of Berne)

-> with the first Search it should also find the Birkenweg in Bern. --> the same problem occurs with other streets.

It will find it eventually but a very long way down the list. There is a well-known issue that Nominatim does not distinguish between Bern (the town) and Bern (the canton) in the search query. At the moment it is unclear how this issue can be solved without loosing the current flexibility with the addressing schema.

There are already a few issues with a similar topic and the same underlying problem. So closing this as duplicate.
