A truncation operator allows users to search for words beginning or ending with a given prefix. For example, the query "messag*" will find documents containing words such as "messaging" and "messages". This is particularly useful when users are uncertain of a term's spelling, or when they want to intentionally broaden their search to encompass many variants of a given words.
