Same question asked in http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31903162/how-are-numbers-matched-in-osm-nominatim-geocoder-search?noredirect=1#comment51750986_31903162

Here is one things that I cannot make sense of how Nominatim handles numbers (at least in Barcelona):

Searching for **Passeig de Gràcia** and appending numbers **38** or **1**, or **20** all returns the same set of results. I don't know where it's matching '38', or '1', or '20' because they are not in the results as fields.
Searching for **Calle Mare de Deu dels Desemparats 18** is not returning any result but removing **18** returns 1 result.
Why does the service appear to be lenient to the number search parameters of **Passeig de Gràcia** while *strict* with **Calle Mare de Deu dels Desemparats**?
