It actually works both ways. You will get indexed under the stream of 'phrases', but the repetition is across the words. "boat dock, boat anchor, sail boat, big boat" are four words. I also stay away from stemming. "boats, boating, boat" are near the same. I do use some stems that float above the 3 repetition rule, but only if needed.
