To match only terms in the text that begin and end on a whole word boundary, set this parameter to True.

To match terms that start and end anywhere, including in the middle of a word in the text, set this parameter to False.

For example, if MatchWholeWord=True, a search for the term 80 does not find a match in the text string 80mph. If MatchWholeWord=False, a search for the term par finds a match in the text string separated.


You can override the value of this parameter for specific actions by setting the MatchWholeWord action parameter.
