Help on searching EMIRE
Enter a keyword, or set of keywords, in the search box and click on the search button. The first page of results will be returned to you, showing the title and country of the glossary entries containing the keywords. Click on the title to go to the entry. Use the First/Next/Previous/Last buttons to page through your results.
The simplest search is to look for a single word. This will return all glossary entries that contain the entered word.
You can use the words 'and' , 'or' and 'not' to specify whether the documents should contain all, some or none of the keywords.
||this will return glossary entries that contain both gender and equality|
||this will return glossary entries that contain either gender or equality or both|
||this will return glossary entries that contain gender but do not contain equality|
USING WILDCARDS IN YOUR SEARCH
When specifying keywords you can use wildcards to generalize your search. The two wildcard characters are the asterisk (*) and the question mark (?). The asterisk is a placeholder for any number of characters (including none), while the question mark signifies exactly one character. You can use the wildcards at the beginning or in the middle of a name. You can even use more than one wildcard.
||would find "cat", "catalog", "cathode", and so on..|
||would find, for example, "scat" and "application" as well as all the names from the previous example|
||would find "cat" and "cot", but not "coat"|
||would find "coat" and "cast", but not "cat"|
SEARCHING ONLY THE TITLES
You can choose whether to search the full glossary for your search term, or just the titles within the glossary. To search the full glossary, click on the 'Complete glossary entry' option. To limit your search to just the glossary titles, click on the 'Title only' option.
LIMITING YOUR SEARCH BY COUNTRY
The 'Limit search by country' option allows you to limit your search to one or more countries. The returned glossary entries (if any) will all be for the specified countries only. To select one country, just click on it. To select more than one country, hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on the required countries. To clear the a selected country, hold down the Ctrl key and click on the country. Note that if you select no countries from the list, all countries are searched. This is exactly equivalent to selecting all the countries in the list.
For example, if you type in
work as your keyword with stem searching enabled, glossary entries containing any of the words 'work', 'worked' or 'working' will be returned.
