There a few things you might want to remember to make using the
features of the TCP interface easier.
In a search form with more than one box you have to fill out the first box. Otherwise your search will not return any results.
Truncation is not automatic. To search variations and the plural
of a word, include an asterisk * at the end of the word. For example,
war*, will look for wars, warrior, warm and so forth. The simple
term war will look only for the word war. Truncation is especially
helpful when dealing with the inconsistencies of early modern spelling.
Currently, wildcard searching is not available. In other words,
you cannot look for variant spellings of time by searching t*me.
