# Script: Class dw.suggest.SuggestedTerms

# Class SuggestedTerms

- Object
- dw.suggest.SuggestedTerms

This container represents a list of suggested terms, all belonging to a particular single original term of the users input search phrase. Each user input term of the search phrase is being processed separately by the suggestion engine. For each original term, a list of terms will be suggested, either completed terms, corrected terms or even the exact term if they are known to the engine as they are. A instance of this class refers to the original unmodified term, as well as to a list of SuggestedTerms objects representing a single suggested term.
