Synonym searching is now enabled on Huddersfield Exposed. This is primarily being used to provide search across common variant spellings, such as:
- Hellawell / Helliwell / Hellwell
- Hinchliffe / Hinchcliff / Hinchcliffe / Hinchliff
- Lingards / Lingarths
- Linthwaite / Linfit
- Slaithwaite / Slawit
The initial emphasis is on adding synonyms to improve searching across the Holmfirth Flood Project content where spellings of names and places varies from one newspaper report to the next.
For example, a search for linfit hall will also match linthwaite hall…
Using quotation marks overrides the synonym searching, allowing you to focus on a specific spelling…
