Users can enter any>number of query words in their inflected forms. The search program will>parse the query words and find sentences that contain words derived from the>same lexical forms. It is also possible for users to limit their searches>by specifying words that should or should not be included in the search>results.> >A complete description of this tool with sample links is located at>http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/PR/search.ann.html> >These tools are the first results of our recent research into ways to adapt>techniques from the fields of corpus linguistics and information retrieval>for Greek and Latin texts.
