  • Usage:

    • If a phrase contains a noise word, dtSearch will skip over the noise word when searching for it.

  • Example:

    • "statue of liberty"

      • This example would retrieve any file containing the word statue, any intervening noise word, and the word liberty.

      • For more accurate searching, the noise word ‘of’ could be removed from the Stop Word List.
