Help: Truncation Searching

Truncation searching allows you to retrieve documents containing variations on a search term. To execute a truncation search, type the first few letters (stem) of the keyword followed by an asterisk (*).

This search would retrieve entries for all documents containing the words: edel, Edelgespinst, Edelmann, edelste, Edelstein, edelsten, etc.

When executing a phrase truncation search, only the final word in the phrase can be truncated.

This search would retrieve matches for all documents containing the phrases: 'die Liebe', 'die Liebenden', 'die Liebeszene', 'die Liebkosungen', 'die Liebliche', 'die liebste', etc.
