Exhaustivity of indexing, or depth of indexing, refers to the number of index terms assigned.
Four types of searching errors were identified: omission of topics from the search strategy, use of inappropriate terms, defective search logic, and inappropriate levels of specificity or exhaustivity in the search strategy.
The average Web searcher has little understanding of the search process much less a fundamental ability to determine the effectiveness or exhaustivity
of a search.
This fact is relevant in that exhaustivity
is a significant feature of identificational focus.

The exhaustivity of the abstract relates to its breadth of coverage.
Nevertheless, brevity should always be secondary to other considerations such as exhaustivity and accuracy.
Density is a measure that relates the attribute of exhaustivity to that of brevity.
The C value is the measure of exhaustivity as defined earlier in this discussion, while the L value is the number of words in the abstract divided by the number in the original.
Furthermore, I will assume that the above-mentioned abstract polarity head focus can be identified with the silent counterpart of replacive negation, or perhaps with an abstract exhaustivity
operator, a silent counterpart of only, as suggested by Lasnik and Stowell (1991: 715).
