Comparing with the existing list of stop-words in citeproc-js, we also have these:

"or", "yet", "so", "for", "and", "nor", "a", "an", "the", "de", "d'", "von", "van", "c", "et", "ca"];

The stuff after the first nine has been added in response to user requests, so those should stay unless there are complaints.

Are the first nine okay to include?

@adam3smith, can you take a look at Frank's comment?

In addition, should we prune the list from two-word entries that exist as separate one-word entries? E.g. we have "up to" as well as "up" and "to", so the former seems redundant. Same goes for "on to", "next to", "near to", etc.

It does look redundant. I can't see any harm in removing those two-word terms.

Sorry, I apparently don't get notifications for these. The list is only prepositions - the other terms should definitely still be included. I agree, we should prune redundant two-word prepositions. I can take a look.

@adam3smith, I think you missed "except for". Rest looks good.
