I was searching for a definition on
wordnik.com The definition I was looking for was not returned as the first result. And, I was frustrated because the remaining results were not in alphabetical order. It was difficult to tell if my definition was present elsewhere within the results.
I know that Mojeek is based on lexical search which means that the algorithm matches spelling instead of meaning or intent.
Would it be possible to add a search operator, ex.
sort:true, that sorted the results in alphabetical order?
I still want the algorithm to return the most relevant results. What I am asking is for the results on each page to be sorted alphabetically by page title.
I think this would help in my case. And it might be useful for lexical searching in general.
In particular, I use a large number of “results per page” in my Mojeek settings. So, I could check for my definition in one spot on each result page. And, after checking a few pages, I would have quickly scanned the first one hundred results.
