Help Stop-Word List

A stop-word list omits commonly occurring words or numbers from a full-text search, thus increasing the speed of the search. Use the following guidelines when creating your stop list.

  • A stop-word list can have only one word per line with no leading or trailing spaces. Any character after the first word on a line is ignored.

  • Apostrophe characters (') are stripped out, and letters before and after are concatenated. For example, "it's" is equivalent to "its".

  • The underscore (_) and pound sign (#) characters are treated as normal characters. For example, "_open" will stop only "_open", but not "open".

  • Extended chars (ASCII range 128-255) are normalized. For example, "ä" is treated as "a".

  • Hyphen (-), semicolon (;), and colon(:) characters are not allowed. These characters have the effect of breaking words, which is equivalent to two words on the same line.

You can use the following stop-word list as a template by copying the stop words into a text (.txt) file and then adding it to your project.
