Subject Scoring a query with OR's
Date Sun, 09 Mar 2008 16:39:57 GMT

I had a look at the scoring equation and read the scoring online document:

It is clear to me how the scoring equation would work for a query that 
contains AND:

but what exactly happens when there are OR's, for eg.  (life OR place OR 

The scoring equation can get a score for life, place, time separately, but 
what does it do with them then? Does it also add them.

Many thanks,
