KWIC

KWIC is an acronym for Keyword In Context, the most common format for concordance lines.

A KWIC index is formed by sorting and aligning the words within an article title to allow each word (except the stop words[?]) in titles to be searchable alphabetically in the index. It was a useful indexing method for technical manuals before computerized Full Text Search[?] became common. For example, the title statement of this article and wikipiedia would appear as follows in a KWIC index. A KWIC index usually uses a wide layout to allow the display of maximum 'in context' information (not shown in the following example).
