Yes.  Unless you tell it to do otherwise with a MetaName setting in
your config file.

Keep in mind that

    -w Tom

is just a shortcut for

    -w swishdefault=Tom

So, it's not much different than saying:

    -w book=Tom

Do you have swish installed?  You can often use the "-T indexed_words"
to get answers to your questions.
