3.3.5 Stop Word Option

[1]
'[173] FTRefOrList ::= ...'
    The name "RefOrList" is fairly generic. Perhaps "FTStopWords"?

[2]
'[174] FTInclExclStringLiteral ::= ("union" | "except") FTRefOrList'
    The "StringLiteral" in the name doesn't really make sense.
    Perhaps "FTStopwordInclExcl" ?

[3]
para 2
"they are used as they occur in the sequence."
    There's no antecedent for "the sequence".

[4]
Note
"If applied during indexing asking for stop words to not be used during a
query, will have no effect."
    [4a]
    After "indexing", insert comma.

    [4b]
    Except for the fact that it's a Note, this appears to be a license for
    a Full-Text processor to behave non-conformantly. Surely if an
    implementation does some pre-emptive computation assuming certain
    options, and a query uses conflicting options, then the implementation
    is obliged to ignore the prepared results and do what it takes to give
    the correct answer.

[5]
examples
    I think it would be instructive if you had an example like
        ... p ftcontains "supports users" with stop words ("the")
    As I understand it, the result is false (despite the fact that the
    text contains "supports the users"), which might not be what people
    expect.

[6]
'contains the "then"'
    Change to 'contains "the" and "then"' ?

[7]
'except ("the then")'
    Are you sure? Supposedly, no tokenization is performed on "the then".
    I think you mean 'except ("the", "then")', or else you need to clarify
    how string literals are handled here.
