I will appreciate some guidance for implementing the following type of

Given a set of search terms (t1, t2, t3, ti), return all documents where in
a sequence of x=10 tokens at least c=3 of the search terms appear within
the sequence

So for example the following document matches the search (expand, discount,
file, search, lookup)

"Many of us rely on Windows Search to find files and launch programs, but
searching for text within files is limited to specific filetypes by
default. Here’s how you can *expand *your *search *to include other text
based *files*."

Within the sequence of the last 10 words of the document the expand, files,
and search terms appear so there is a match.

Does any documentation exist on adding new types of queries into the Luence
