To better support such queries, we introduce a system that automatically extracts subject-verb-object concepts from unstructured text documents and dynamically presents them to the user as navigable refinements. This approach, which we call "idea navigation," makes subject-verb-object querying as simple as selecting successive refinements. It also supports exploratory
