This isn't very new. I remember it was present at least a month ago.

The first query I used to test the "new" feature out was: "this is going to be so long and meaningless that there's no purpose of continuing" – and then I was like... "that's what she said." LOL :)

In google translate they have a comparable solution for longer inputs, yet over there it often fails to work the lenght out correctly.

Ash, how's this for a citation:

<< "thirtythree" (and any subsequent words) was ignored because we limit queries to 32 words. >>
