Jardic Pro 8.3. Расширенный полнотекстовый поиск 1 августа 2014 г.

В новой версии Jardic Pro 8.3 улучшены алгоритмы полнотекстового поиска с использованием русских слов:

  • Если в качестве поискового слова ввести существительное или прилагательное в именительном падеже, то программа покажет все словарные статьи, в которых это слово употреблено с различными падежными окончаниями. Например, при вводе слова "красный" также будут показаны словарные статьи, содержащие слова: "красного", "красных", "красном" и т.д.
  • Если в качестве поискового слова ввести глагол совершенного или несовершенного вида, то программа также покажет словарные статьи, в которых употребляется соответствующий глагол противоположного вида. Например, при вводе слова "наливать" отыскиваются также словарные статьи, содержащие слово "налить", при вводе "продать" - со словом "продавать" и т.д. (Поиск по другим формам глаголов: времени, числу, лицам пока не предусмотрен.)
  • Эти же правила работают и при вводе нескольких поисковых слов. Так, при вводе поисковых слов "красная фасоль" будут найдены и словарные статьи со словами "красной фасоли" и т.д.
  • Для поиска по точному совпадению слова (для отказа от расширенного поиска) поисковое слово необходимо заключить в кавычки.

Описанные расширенные алгоритмы полнотекстового поиска используются и в онлайн-словаре, доступном со страниц нашего сайта.
