Proximity Searching

Finding search terms that occur within a specified number of words in the same Text Unit. Proximity searching is not as stringent as phrase searching, which requires that the terms occur in the text exactly as entered for the search, but is more stringent than Boolean "AND" Searching, which will create a Hit if the search terms both occur anywhere in the Text Unit.
