the multiphrasequery is just like a more general phrase query.

a phrase query for "abc bc" looks for "abc" in the document, followed by "bc"
a multiphrasequery for "(abc a) bc" looks for ("abc OR a") in the
document, followed by "bc".

this is also the same way synonyms work with phrase queries.
imagine you have a synonyms file that looks like this:
dog => dog, dogs
food => food, chow

then if a user types "dog food", the resulting query is a
multiphrasequery of "(dog dogs) (food chow)"
this matches all 4 possibilities:
dog food
dogs food
dog chow
dogs chow
