Choosing a search type

One way to control your search is to select from among a number of search types.

Boolean search lets you look for combinations of up to four terms or phrases using Boolean connector terms (i.e., AND, OR, NOT).

Proximity search lets you look for terms based on whether they occur (or do not occur) within a specified distance of each other.

Word index lets you browse through concordances of words that occur in works, selecting values as you go to add to a search query that you can then submit at any time.
