Sure.  From MSDN:

<quote>
To prevent the full-text index from becoming bloated, noise-words (words that are too common to expedite the search, such as "a,"and,"the," and "therefore") are ignored. Noise-word lists for many languages are available in the directory \Mssql\Ftdata\Sqlserver\Config. And the set of supported languages is growing. The choice of a particular noise-word list is based on the language of the material that is file-format dependent during the filtering process. Some files set the language per section or paragraph; some specify it for the entire document. These noise-word lists should be sufficient for most operations, but they can be modified. Administrators can use a regular text editor to modify the contents of a list. For example, a computer company can add the word "computer" to its noise-word list.

It does not explicitly say it, but I suspect you have to re-populate the full text search.

I just confirmed it, you need to re-populate the full-text search catalogs, before any change to the noise-word file takes effect.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Dan,

Could you take a second look.  Not to "blow my own trumpet", but I believe I gave the correct answer.
