Search Nomenclature

The below table explains some of the advanced search functionality Projector supports.

Natural SearchA natural language search request is any combination of words, phrases, or sentences. After a natural language search, dtSearch sorts retrieved documents by their relevance to your search request. Weighting of retrieved documents takes into account: the number of documents each word in your search request appears in (the more documents a word appears in, the less useful it is in distinguishing relevant from irrelevant documents); the number of times each word in the request appears in the documents; and the density of hits in each document. Noise words and search connectors like NOT and OR are ignored.
StemmingStemming extends a search to cover grammatical variations on a word. For example, a search for fish would also find fishing. A search for applied would also find applyingapplies, and apply. There are two ways to add stemming to your searches:
  1. If you want to add stemming selectively, add a ~ at the end of words that you want stemmed in a search. Example: apply

apple and pear

Both words must be present

apple or pear

Either word can be present

apple w/5 pear

Apple must occur within 5 words of pear

apple not w/5 pear

Apple must not occur within 5 words of pear

apple and not pear

Only apple must be present

name contains smith

The field name must contain smith


Matches any single character. Example: appl? matches apply or apple.


Matches any number of characters. Example: appl* matches application


Stemming. Example: apply~ matches applyappliesapplied.


Fuzzy search. Example: ba%nana matches bananabananna.


Phonic search. Example: #smith matches smithsmythe.


Synonym search. Example: fast& matches quick.


Numeric range. Example: 12~~24 matches 18.


Variable term weighting. Example: apple:4 w/5 pear:1
