I would agree with this; people are going to find this confusing.
We also had some suggestions from  users: one of which is the following:

Instead of cluttering the right-click menu, all the different search 
options should be presented as a sub-menu.  In other words, when I 
right-click on a selected phrase, I should see a single entry in the 
menu called "Search for 'phrase'" which leads to the following sub-menu:
- as a keyword
- as a title
- as an author
- in Google Scholar

Just my 02 cents,
Rick Silterra
