Hi

Can you someone please explain why when I do a basic search for say Angels that I get a number of good links but I also get a whole load of links to Los Angeles! Surely the basic spelling of the word should be checked and Angeles should appear right at the very end??? Am I missing something? Why would I want to know about LA??

Thanks

DominicM:

Interesting cross-language parsing that considers angel+s equivalent to angel+es Bad Grammar. Bad Spelling. Naughty, naughty Logos.Smile

Actually since "Los Angeles" is Spanish for "the angels" you might not always want to exclude it. Smile
