Why should you sometimes truncate a word by leaving out a letter or group of letters (e.g., creat rather than create)? Truncation is not useful in most searches and shouldn't be used. Truncation will help limit the results to only those you want. Use truncation when you aren't certain of the spelling of a word. Use it to broaden a search to include different forms of the truncated word.
