Information access systems based on standard mechanisms can be improved. Not because of any obvious drawbacks in the mechanisms themselves: they provide consistent and stable results, with variation from system to system surprisingly small; the reason to continue work is that the stable results are not only consistent but consistently mediocre. This paper claims linguistic research has a important role to play in the future of information access.
