I'm performing a fulltext search like so:

SELECT *
  FROM CONTAINSTABLE([dbo].[FulltextDiary], ([DocumentText]), '"Shaun*"') CTT

It returns a whole set of results, but one of them seems a bit odd. I check the [DocumentText] column in the relevant table, and, indeed, the string "Shaun" is nowhere to be found, let alone anything starting with the string "Shaun". I also cannot find anything looking remotely like Shaun, e.g. Shawn, Séan, etc etc etc.

How can I find out what it was that led to a particular row being included in the search result?
