I'm afraid you can't say "index this word," though that's not a bad
idea (a "good words" list?) It's not indexing it because it's shorter
than the default minimum_word_length. So if you want to index it,
you'll need to set that to 2 and add a whole bunch of two-letter
words to your bad_words file so you don't index things like "an,"
"so," "of," etc.
