W/s (Within Sentence) Connector

Use the W/s connector to find documents with search words that appear within the same sentence. You may also use W/s when you wish a close relationship between words without specifying an exact proximity.

Note: W/s connectors cannot be used in combination with proximity connectors (e.g., W/n, PRE/n).

For example, the following search finds "nervous shock " within the same sentence as "football":

nervous shock W/s football

The following example finds "olympic" within the same sentence as "bid":

olympic W/s bid
