Truncation is a removal of a prefix or suffix.
Truncation, in search, is a technique used to refine or limit the number of results returned by a search query.
In truncation, a symbol is added to the end of a keyword or root word to match variations of the word, such as plurals or different verb conjugations.
For example, if you search for the word “run” with truncation, the search results might include “running,” “runner,” “ran,” and other variations of the word.
Truncation can be useful in broadening or narrowing a search, depending on the context and the desired results.
