Abstract
This progress report presents findings from a failure analysis of 2 commercial full text computer assisted legal research (CALR) systems. Linguistic analyzes of unretrieved documents als false drops reveal a number of potential causes for performance problems in these databases, ranging from synonymy and homography to discourse level cohesive relations. Ecxamines and discusses examples of natural language phenomena that affects Boolean retrieval system performance
