By default, Zing includes a sample synonym dictionary consisting of a list of synonym sets
(synsets). Zing supports two types of synonym sets.
Table 1. Synonym set types
|Synonym set type
||A synonym list is a list of words separated by commas. When a search uses any word
from the list, Zing expands the search to include all words in the list.
||A synonym map is two word lists separated by the equal and greater than characters =>
. When a search uses any word from the list on the left, Zing expands the search to include
all words from the list on the right. When a search uses a word from the list on the right,
Zing does not expand the search to include terms from the list on the left.
||IOT,Internet of Things=>Chip,Nest thermostat,RFID,IOT
In search results, documents containing the original search keywords having a higher score than
documents containing the search synonyms. For example, documents with the keyword
IOT have a higher score than documents with the synonym
Internet of Things.
Search administrators can create synonym set for search terms that produce no or low-scoring
search results. See the Top Searches homepage for information about
your user's search behavior.
