Entering a Natural Language Query
If you wish to, you may enter a query in the form of a sentence or
question. The software will automatically identify the important words
and phrases within your query and remove the "noise words".
An important feature of our software is that it will not remove noise words
from a phrase that is within its vocabulary.
If concept expansion is enabled it will also search
for all the possible meanings of your query as well.
- What is the state of the art in text retrieval?
- The software will search for:
- state of the art AND text AND retrieval
The default of the program is to locate answers within sentence proximity.
