Natural Language Search
Using plain language to enter your search
This type of search is the easiest to understand, but many databases don't offer it as a function.
A natural language search is a search using regular spoken language, such as English. Using this type of search you can ask the database a question or you can type in a sentence that describes the information you are looking for. The database then uses a programmed logic to determine the keywords in the sentence by their position in the sentence.
The Internet search service Ask.com offers natural language searching.
