I am looking at Matthew 5:13 and I was trying to search for any place there was an adjunct that used a prepostion and pronoun. Initially I had the lemma specified as well. When it returned 0 results (including Matt. 5:13) I removed the lemmas and just searched the appropriate morph codes. It still returns 0 results in the opentext database. I tried a search in the Cascadia database and it returned 0 results as well. I have the "Matching skips levels checked for the CC. I must be missing something; can anyone identify what it is?

You aren't displaying the whole Graph, notice that there are dotted lines in your display... add the other terms to mimic or turn on matching skips levels (on Words 1&2)

I just did your query with matching skips levels on Word 1 and Word 2 and I got 2736 results including Matt 5:13...

Fred only had the matching skips levels on the Clause Component which doesn't do anything because there is nothing to the left of it/above it.

Thanks Kevin and Dominic. I had the matching skips levels in the wrong place.

I went back and adjusted it and added the lemmas I orginally wanted, back in and got results I could use.

Thanks for the help.
