Types of search available in SV

Entire web

You can use SV to find relevant websites more easily when you're doing an internet search. Here's an example. It's a search for a cottage in Scotland which has trout fishing. The SV image shows that all of the sites on this page contain mentions of trout, but only one of the sites actually mentions fishing in the text of its header.

Single site

With SV, you can focus on a single site that interests you. Here's an example. It shows mentions of the words Iran and threat on the US government site www.whitehouse.gov You might also find this feature useful for searching an e-commerce site such as amazon.com, or on sites which contain an online copy of a text which interests you (e.g. a particular book).

Sample texts

We've put a variety of classic texts onto the SV site, in an SV-friendly format (a lot of online texts on the Web contain substantial amounts of extra material, such as long introductions). Here's an example. It shows a search of Midsummer Night's Dream using the SV synonym function, so that the words sleep and dream are treated as synonyms of each other (shown in red). We've done the same for fairy and fairies (shown in green). This visualization shows how these two themes occur separately at the very start of the play; however, they soon become tightly intermingled.
