Abstract
(EN)
A database search method and apparatus is disclosed. A search request (102) is processed (104) by identifying syntactical surface patterns within the search request. A comparison is performed (106) with predetermined surface patterns so as to extract at least one relevant search term therefrom. A search (108) is performed of a database using the at least one relevant search term to generate a search result (110).

La présente invention concerne un procédé et un appareil de recherche dans une base de données. Le procédé comprend les étapes consistant à : traiter (104) une demande de recherche (102) en identifiant des motifs de surface syntaxiques à l'intérieur de la demande de recherche ; comparer (106) les motifs identifiés à des motifs de surface prédéfinis de façon à extraire de ceux-ci au moins un terme de recherche pertinent, et ; rechercher (108) dans une base de données à l'aide dudit au moins un terme de recherche pertinent de façon à obtenir un résultat de recherche (110).
