Notion of language

The second numbered item in the first list contains:

\"There is an expectation that a full-text search will support language-based searches which substring search cannot.\"

We propose to add at the end of that list item the following sentence:

\"Note that language is used as a broad term here and throughout this document. Language information can encompass information about the users language, region, scripts, variants etc., which all influence the search result. Compare for example a search for color which gives a result for American English, but not for British English.\"

Rationale: We think that readers should be made aware of the information beyond language used in search.
