# Stop-words

Child route of the settings route.

The stop-words route lets you add a list of words that will be ignored in search queries. So if you add the as a stop word and you make a search on the mask you will only have matching documents with mask.

Stop-words can also be updated directly through the global settings route along with the other settings.
