A nonincremental word search differs slightly from the incremental
version in the way it finds a match: the last word in the search
string must be an exact match for a whole word. In an incremental
word search, the last word in the search string can match part of a
word; this allows the matching to proceed incrementally as you type.
Incremental and nonincremental word searches differ slightly in the
way they find a match. In a nonincremental word search, the last word
in the search string must exactly match a whole word. In an
incremental word search, the matching is more lax: the last word in
the search string can match part of a word, so that the matching
proceeds incrementally as you type. This additional laxity does not
apply to the lazy highlight, which always matches whole words.
