Synonyms

The product automatically finds spelling variations (such as U.S. and U.K. spelling differences) in Topic and Title search terms. The feature allows the product to include in the search results different words that have the same meaning. If you enter a U.S. term, the product automatically searches for the equivalent U.K. term and vice-versa. For example:

  • center finds spelling variants such as center and centre
  • color finds spelling variants such as color and colour
  • fertilizer finds spelling variants such as fertilizer and fertiliser
  • program finds spelling variants such as program and programme
  • And so on ...

To turn this feature off, enter a term using quotation marks (" "). For example, "Color" AND Bird* AND Gene* finds only records containing the term color, along with the terms bird, birds, birdsong, gene, genes, and so forth. Articles that only contain the term colour are not return in the search results.

Important Note: Synonyms do not work with wildcards (* $ ?). For example, entering Pediatric as a search term will find records containing the British equivalent term Paediatric. However, entering Pediatric* as a search term will not find records containing Paediatric or Paediatrics. Keep in mind, however, that entering Pediatric* will find records containing Pediatric and Pediatrics.

See also the Help topic called Lemmatization to learn how the product searches for inflected forms of words in Topic and/or Title searches.
