If you would like to see all forms of a root word (ex: Christian, Christians, and Christianity), you can easily use truncation to look for them all at once.
Truncation, also called stemming, is a technique that broadens your search to include various word endings and spellings.
Similar to truncation, wildcards substitute a symbol for one letter of a word.
Please note: This trick does not work in Theological Journal Database or ProQuest eBook Central.
