MANY Modifier

Counts the density of words, stemmed variations, or phrases in a document, and produces a relevance-ranked score for retrieved documents. The more occurrences of a word, stem, or phrase proportional to the amount of document text, the higher the score of that document when retrieved. Because the MANY modifier considers density in proportion to document text, a longer document that contains more occurrences of a word may score lower than a shorter document that contains fewer occurrences.

The MANY modifier can be used with the following operators: WORD, WILDCARD, STEM, SOUNDEX, PHRASE, SENTENCE, PARAGRAPH and THESAURUS.

Note that the MANY modifier cannot be used with AND, OR, ACCRUE, or relational operators.
