Hello everyone,

Is there a way for words to be treated as synonyms during indexing and when computing results?
For example, you could combine the words "job", "labour" and "work" as synonyms, and count each as a reference to employment.

Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    you can use the Replace Tokens operator and define rules to replace job, labour and work by employment. If you want to load the dictionary from an external text file, please use Stem (Dictionary). Don't be misled by the name, it basically just replaces terms.

    Best, Marius
