        Its actually very similar to Google if you use the fulltext search. On full text search if you enter "chit chat" it is a phrase based search. Yes, the quotes are required. Without them its an or based search, just like google. You can use + and - to include or exclude words as well.

        If you're using the built-in search than you can only use +word -word. It doesn't do natural language or language based searches.
        Translations provided by Google.
