In short
Elasticsearch gets a lot of its power from how it works with analyzers and inverted indices. These inverted indices store your text data in a format optimized for search and allow for very fast lookups, yielding fast search results. Not understanding how these inverted indices are being used in text search will most likely lead to confusing search results down the road.
