There's a perfectly good reason for that. When you enter "cat" or
"rat", the script is searching for *cat* or *rat* not \<cat\> or
\<rat\>. This is annoying with these short 3 letter sequences that
often occur in longer words, but it is very useful for less common
sequences. For example (and I haven't tried this in Yivrian or even
in Kélen), *drink* should yield such words as "drink", "drinking",
maybe "drinking glass" or "poison drink", etc. Very useful!
The Kélen language can be found at:
