Keyword 'Based On Novel'
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=based-on-novel&ref_=fn_al_kw_1
needs merging with, and re-routing to:
'Based On Book'
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=based-on-book&ref_=fn_al_kw_1
 
I know there's a difference but the terms are used interchangeably since people do not appreciate the difference between them when it comes to their meanings.
And that's fine, but they need to be stacked in 1 place.
Cheers!

As a user I would like to be able to search for films that are based on novels, which is more specific than books.

Same, but the problem is that these keywords have been used interchangeably so the lists are inaccurate anyway.

I actually recently looked in to this and as Peter says, there is an important distinction between these two keywords so we aren't going to merge them. If you see a title with one of these two applied erroneously please delete that from the title in question. Sorry if this isn't the outcome you wanted!
