YouTube Crossed Out Query

At first I thought the words that were crossed out might be stop words or words that do not relate to the query. But "people" or "marathon" or "organizations" would be equivalent to "and" or "or" and so on?

I am now thinking that the words that are crossed off are the words not matched in the search query. Meaning, the word "marathon" was not found in the search results for this long search query. Maybe?
