Google Scholar automatically searches for simple singular and plural forms of terms you enter, along with additional different endings to some words, and for some related terms. For example:
- sport returns sport ; sports
- diet returns diet ; diets ; dietary
- woman may return woman or woman ; women ; female
The number of related terms included in the results may depend on the search being conducted. This feature cannot be turned off, and there is no separate truncation search that allows the user to designate that a term should be searched with any possible ending.
