Watch out for variant spellings of names of works, characters, etc.
In MLA and other databases, frequently English-language articles use the original language name for a work. Example: Das Parfum instead of Perfume.
Use a * to cut off a word at its stem, e.g. psychopath* will retrieve psychopath, psychopaths, psychopathy
If you can't use a star to search for spelling variants, use OR
parfum or perfume
