Using Stop-Word Lists

Stop-word lists are files that contain words that should not be searched for. Verity supports several different types of stop-word lists. Some are applied to the collection at indexing time to prevent the stop words from appearing in the index, whereas others are applied at search time to strip the stop words from the search query.

You can create stop-word lists as part of the application-development process, or the administrator can create and modify stop-word lists as part of maintaining the K2 installation.

Stop-word lists are described in more detail in the Verity Collection Reference and the Verity Locale Configuration Guide.
