Searching With Phrases

The Verity search engine interprets any string of characters separated by spaces as a phrase. It finds all the words in the phrase and all forms of each word.

For example, this query finds documents containing the phrase circumstance of poisoning as well as circumstances of poisoning:

To find an exact phrase, enclose the phrase in double quotes:


Be careful of phrase searches that contain the following words because they are operators in the Verity Query Language:

shots/sea90000.gif And - interpreted as the Verity Query Language AND operator

shots/sea90000.gif Or - interpreted as the Verity Query Language OR operator

shots/sea90000.gif Not - interpreted as the Verity Query Language NOT operator

You can still search for phrases containing AND, OR, NOT if you enclose them in double quotation marks. For example, the following query finds documents that contain the phrase health and safety:
