I don't see it neither, but it's there (with the garbage character) if you search for "zéro ou plus occurrencce".

Look at the search syntax at https://duck.co/help/results/syntax.

I've made the experience that these things don't usually work, but theoretically searching for "spling AND fnargle" or "spling AND wnark" () would give you the results you want.
a comment on the General Rambling Incorrect Stackexchange (Stackoverflow) instant answers 4 years and 4 months ago
Sometimes when you search something software releated in DDG you get an Stackoverflow instant answer. The problem is that these instant answers often are completely off-topic (for example when a search term is an example string in the SO post e. g. "münchen" - that's a city!) or only somewhat releated to the search (e. g. "PyQt 5"). In the description of instant answers it says they should be better than normal search results, but the Stackexchange results usually are often not, so maybe you should just disable them.

I'm sorry if my english isn't very good
a comment on the General Rambling Better integration of news in search results 4 years and 4 months ago
At the moment if you search for anything that's in the news (maybe not one of the most important news), for example "goto fail" in duckduckgo you get completely normal results, whereas if you search for "news goto fail" you get up-to-date results. In other search engines when you search for something that's currently in the news, you automatically get the news. I think that would be something worth implementing, especially since it's already in duckduckgo's underlying serch engines (Bing).

Yes but if you used a system more intelligent than trigger words you could implement this.

If you had a good source, that wouldn't happen.
