Cannot search for the word "right"

Hello all,

Strange error that I can't seem to understand. I have created a table for items and a fulltext index on the column named "name" (for the item name). Below are the results on several searches:

mysql> select name, match(name) against ("study") from item;
+------------------------+-------------------------------+
| name | match(name) against ("study") |
+------------------------+-------------------------------+
| cdscas | 0 |
| qwe | 0 |
| ghj | 0 |
| Study Right Elementary | 1.0739123291942 |
+------------------------+-------------------------------+

mysql> select name, match(name) against ("right") from item;
+------------------------+-------------------------------+
| name | match(name) against ("right") |
+------------------------+-------------------------------+
| cdscas | 0 |
| qwe | 0 |
| ghj | 0 |
| Study Right Elementary | 0 |
+------------------------+-------------------------------+

mysql> select name, match(name) against ("elementary") from item;
+------------------------+------------------------------------+
| name | match(name) against ("elementary") |
+------------------------+------------------------------------+
| cdscas | 0 |
| qwe | 0 |
| ghj | 0 |
| Study Right Elementary | 1.0739123291942 |
+------------------------+------------------------------------+

Sorry for the crummy tables, I can't help it, this isn't fixed character font.....

Anyways, as you can see (hopefully), I have four items. The other three are trash to help prevent the 50% thing (stopword) from happening. The words "study" and "elementary" bring up the correct relevance, but "right" brings up zero. Anyone have a clue why this is happening?

Thank in advance,

Stephen
