Search with “terms & connectors”
Just enter your words and connectors in the red search box, e.g., same sex! W/10 marriage, and select Search. Lexis Advance automatically interprets search commands such as ! and * to truncate words and W/n, OR, AND, etc. For help selecting connectors, select the Filters pull-down menu in the red search box and select Advance Search. Please note: Lexis Advance ignores certain “noise words” in your query but counts these noise words when determining the proximity of terms in a document. So, broaden your proximity connectors. For example, consider searching W/10 instead of W/5. For W/p and W/s, consider W/75 or W/25, respectively.
Note: Only the AND connector works in Lexis® Web.
