Part of Speech Comparison
When searching for a string in one or more parts of speech, it is sometimes convenient to know if the matches also pertain to other grammatical categories. For example, a search for adjectives ending in ent:
There were 371 matches for the string ent$ in Adjectives.
If we wish to know how many of those adjectives ending in ent are also nouns, under Eliminate matches we can check the radio button unless the word is in... and then check Nouns. (Because we are only checking one part of speech, the radio buttons for all of these parts of speech and any of these parts of speech are irrelevant.) The results are:
There were 99 matches for the string ent$ in Adjectives that are also in Nouns.
If we change unless the word is in... to if the word is in..., the program will only show those adjectives that aren't also nouns:
There were 272 matches for the string ent$ in Adjectives that are not in Nouns.
Note that 99 and 272 add up to 371, the total number of adjectives ending in ent. The same queries for verbs show:
There were 11 matches for the string ent$ in Adjectives that are also in Verbs. There were 360 matches for the string ent$ in Adjectives that are not in Verbs.
It is also possible to know the number of matches that occur in more than one other part of speech. If we check both Nouns and Verbs, there are four possibilities:
