Is a fulltext serarch for *whatever possible?

Using CONTAINS, we can search for "never*" and we will find "nevertheless".
However, I would like to do the inverse: "*less" should also find
"nevertheless". Strangely, I can't find that in the doc and it does not seem
to work.

Am I getting something wrong? Or is this really not possible?

Thanks a lot for your hints,
Matthias Haldimann

PS: This "*whatever" search may not look THAT useful in English, but it is
very important for searches within German nouns.

You might want to post this question to
microsoft.public.sqlserver.fulltext, but the documentation for
CONTAINS indicates that only searches on prefixes are possible.
