Replace the parenthesis text “(according to the rules in the system's FIND)” with “in the current search order”. Since we don't have a term “search order” in the definitions of terms, section 2, only in the search order word set, move that to the definition of terms, and change it:

search order: A list of word lists specifying the order in which the dictionary will be searched (may contain only one word list).

to the definitions of terms.

Replace "(may contain only one word list)" with a new sentence: If the search order wordset is not present, the search consists of all the word lists that contain definitions.

This should also include systems like cmForth which don#t have the search order wordset, but search several word lists in some circumstances.
