User instructions -- Search for examples of a specific type
This page offers the option to search for examples of a specific type, from a specific language. Both parameters can be chosen in a drop-down field.
The examples are classified according to the type of expression which they exemplify (adnominal intensifier, reflexive etc.). Abbreviations in glosses are normalized (click here for a list of glosses), and sources are generally indicated. Also, there is a 'comments'-field where peculiarities of the specific examples are pointed out.
