WDS enables you to define your own set of stop words. We recently noticed that the stop words are removed from searches even when using phrases with the Discovery Language syntax. For example if we search for the phrase "we the people" and we and the are part of the stop words then they will be removed from the search. We understand stop words being ignored by the Natural Language syntax but when stop words are combined in a particular order within a phrase they can be very useful to find relevant content. We think that phrases should not be impacted by stop words. Phrases are meant to be considered as string literals and Discovery should not modify them.
