Returns documents where all of the words you specify appear within a single sentence. You can specify search terms in a sequential or a random order. Documents are retrieved as long as search terms appear in the same sentence.

To retrieve relevance-ranked documents that contain stemmed variations of the words "American" and "innovation" within the same sentence, you can enter the following:

american <SENTENCE> innovation

<SENTENCE> (american, innovation)

You can use the SENTENCE operator with the ORDER modifier to perform ordered proximity searches.
