That's why you can choose substrings or whole words.

certain terms and word forms from being deleted by substrings). There
are many more applications I could think of. Why not comparing two
word lists, e.g. by subtracting list A from list B in order to get
the difference? For me, dealing with word lists is mainly related to
Text Retrieval and indexing of text databases, and NT has become an
indispensable tool in this field.
Several members have contributed to this thread. I just tried to find
out how these proposals could be integrated into this clip. It isn't
more than a box of building blocks. Maybe you could pick out some
ideas matching your own needs...
