Hello,

If I will use "tutor job for 14 year old" as a phrase negative kw, and people search "tutor jobs for 14 year old" (plural), so my phrase negative kw will work for close variant or not?

or I need to create a separate phrase negative for plural kw.

RobSkelton's answer is correct. Just wanted to add that if the phrase "14 year old" has no value to you, you can just add that as a phrase negative to eliminate both variants you were talking about.

You have to create a separate negative.

 

Negative keywords do not stem or work for variants. 

 

Yes, it is annoying.
