Definition of stop list in English:
A list of words automatically omitted from a computer-generated concordance or index, typically the most frequent words, which would slow down processing unacceptably.
- A neat touch is the stop optimisation facility, which re-orders the stop list to eliminate or reduce doubling back on yourself.
