The TITUS Text Retrieval Engine

The linguistic content of the texts that are stored in the  TITUS Text Database is accessible in two ways:

Within the TITUS retrieval engine, searching can be done in three levels of exactness:

In the query entry forms, two  "wildcard" symbols can be used to represent single characters or a sequence of characters, resp. The wildcards to be used are the question mark, "?", for single characters, and the asterisk, "*", for sequences of characters. E.g., "h?t" will represent "hat", "hit", "hot", and "hut" while "h*t" will also represent "hunt", "host", "haircut" etc. Please note that the search type will automatically be set to "inexact match" when you use "*" as a wildcard in the query.

Further search types, including language-specific wildcard searches to match "all vowels", "all stops" etc. will be provided in the future, we hope.

Attention: All texts stored in the TITUS text database are encoded using Unicode / UTF8. The special characters as contained in them can only be displayed and printed using a font that covers Unicode such as the TITUS font  Titus Cyberbit Unicode.
