"Meaning extraction" identifies elements of information and concepts contained within documents and document repositories, and surfaces combinations of these informative elements and concepts that imply meaning in the context of the business, professional, or technical purpose of the search process.

"Meaning extraction" involves a three-step process:
- Extract references to important terms and concepts, particularly concepts that imply meaning for the business purpose of the search.
- Apply proximity intelligence to determine which terms and concepts are often in proximity to one another.
- Identify patterns of proximity-related concepts ("scenarios") that imply meaning to a knowledgeable practitioner, and scan all the documents responsive to a query to identify for the researcher those patterns in all the documents.
