Synonym Searching

Synonym searching finds synonyms of a word that you include in a search request.  For example, a search for fast would also find quickly. To enable synonym searching, check the Synonym searching box in the Search dialog box.  You can also enable synonym searching selectively by adding the & character after certain words in your request.  Example: improve& w/5 search
