The basics

The Full Text Search on the Oracc home page [http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu] is designed to be used very intuitively. Just enter one or more words in any relevant modern or ancient language (in transliteration or transcription) and see what happens. Results will be returned from text transliterations, translations, language glossaries, and portal pages across Oracc—wherever your word occurs.

Compared to Oracc's corpus, glossary and advanced search functions, the Full Text Search is quite fuzzy. It just searches for strings of characters, regardless of whether they are a whole word, or which language they are in. So although the Full Text Search is useful for locate which projects or corpora words appear in, it does not replace the much more sophisticated corpus, glossary and advanced search functions.
