Wilcard searches can be performed using several special characters. The asterisk "*" is a truncation operator. By searching for Keyword=Babyl*, the user will get all records with any term beginning with "Babyl...", for instance Babylon, Babylonian, Babylonischer, etc. The asterisk also works on the front of words so that a user can search for "*gypt" to find "Egypt", "Ägypt", or "Aegypt."
