Full-Text Stoplist Properties

Use this dialog box to add or delete individual stopwords, delete all stopwords for a specific language, or clear the current stoplist. A stopword is a commonly used word that is included in a stoplist. The stopwords in a stoplist are omitted from full-text indexing for tables that use the stoplist. For more information, see Configure and Manage Stopwords and Stoplists for Full-Text Search.
