Advanced Search: Search for exact phrase in its entirety?

Hi all,

Is there a way to customize Share's advanced search to search for an exact phrase in its entirety?

For example, I have a text attribute with a constrained list of 2 values that allow it to be set to either "ABC" and "ABC DEF". In my advanced search page, if I select "ABC", I will get back results that have "ABC DEF" as well. This makes sense because that phrase exists in items that have the latter attribute value.

I suppose more specifically I'm wondering if there's a way to indicate that the search should start and end with the search term. I see in the FTS Syntax Wiki page, spans and positions are not yet implemented, so maybe I've answered my own question here, but thought I'd toss it to the community to see if anyone has experience doing this.
