Hi,

Check http://xapian.org/docs/queryparser.html for an overview.

If you want to test, look at 
http://demoprints.eprints.org/cgi/search/simple and try, for instance, 
to search for:

rit* (will match rituals etc)
rituals AND turtle
rituals -turtle
"mating rituals" for exact matching
etc.

You may also pre-pend a field name eg:

title: rituals
etc.

Seb.
