If I started a new question with the title "Pronunciation of 'cat'" the related question helper finds bunches of questions starting with "pronunciation of". This seems to happen with many of the common question forms:
- What is the meaning of "cat"?
- What is the difference between "cat" and "dog"?
- What is the origin of "raining cats and dogs"?
- Where did the phrase "raining cats and dogs" come from?
Etc. Related questions to these are more likely to matter if the part in quotes were given extreme priority. As in, the phrase "pronunciation of" is going to be mostly insignificant. Is there a way to lower the relevance of certain words in the search algorithm?
For the record, here are the related questions found for
