Build a strong search
A good search term is the key to effectively and rapidly finding information. Here are some tips:
Be specific. Consider including synonyms for a specific terminology. For example, the term ‘syllables’ is more precise than 'speech sounds'.
Link your terms in specific ways. Using AND, OR, NOT can structure the search engines' assumptions about the order in which the terms should appear in a webpage. For example: Pitch movement AND Intonation
Consider using the Search Guide or Help available in databases.
