Comment: 	Re: SHK 17.1023 New Shakespeare Search Engine Launches

One severe limitation of the Folger search engine is that there is no way 
(that I can see) to get a partial match.  For instance, a search on 
"blood" will not bring up "bloody," "bloodier," or "bloodiest."

The search engines on my site <http://www.clicknotes.com>will do only 
whole words or partial matches -- your choice.

Another note: There is no search engine that will return the idea, not 
just the word--for instance, Lady Macbeth's "I scorn to bear a heart so 
white."

The link in Martin Mueller's message did not work, so I Googled Wordhoard 
& found that it's something that has to be downloaded and has system 
requirements that are beyond the capabilities of my machine.

I think the best--most flexible, most intuitive--Shakespeare search engine 
is at this address:
