Phrase Detection

Phrase detection identifies phrases in your signals so that results with matching phrases can be boosted. This helps compensate for queries where phrases are not distinguished with quotation marks. For example, the query ipad case is rewritten as “ipad case”~10^2, meaning that if ipad and case appear within 10 characters of each other then boost the result by a factor of two.

Phrases are applied in the Text Tagger stage of the query pipeline.
