Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Algorithm For Hyphenating French Words
This article describes an algorithm for providing systematic syllabic
determination of hyphen points in French words that requires no dictionary or
other contextual information.
The following four vowel(V)-consonant(C) characters are defined
as providing proper hyphenation points for French language words:
1. VC-CV 3. VV-CV
2. CV-CV 4. CV-VC
A word to be hyphenated is examined from left to right to determine
the V and C combinations. The following characters and character
combinations are defined as the set of vowels: V = a, e, i, o, u,
y, am, an, em, en, im, in, on, om, um, un, ym, yn, ai, au,
ei, eu, ay, ey, oi, oy, ou, oe, ui. The following characters and
character combinations are defined as the set of consonants: C = the
twenty alphabet consonants and bl, br, ch, cl, cr, dh, dr, fl, fr,
gl, gr, gn, ph, pr, pl, rh, th, tr, vr, sco, sci, gu, qu.
A hyphen point exists in a word each time the V and C determination results
in one of the four defined clusters.
