Chapter 12. THE PRINCIPLE OF APPLIED POWER > Using Two or More Syntaxes

Using Two or More Syntaxes

You might be thinking, “If one special syntax is good, two or more special syntaxes are better, right?” In some cases that's true. But in all cases you'll need to be even more careful about using the syntax. Mixing syntax works well when you need to find something very specific and you want to slant the result a particular way. For example, you may want to do a medical search that slants to academic search results. Using Google, you could try a search like:

|special syntaxes|combining

|special syntaxes|searchable subject index
