You can use parts of speech as part of your query. For example, OJO ADJ would find a two word string, composed of a form of ojo followed immediately by an adjective (click to try it).

Probably the easiest way to use part of speech tags is by selecting them from the drop-down list (click on [POS] in the search form to show it).

You can also type the part of speech tags directly into the search form. The following table shows some of the tags available, and notes are found in the section following the table. You can concatenate the codes from columns 1, 2, and 3, for example vip-2s would give tienes, dices, hablas, etc (see more examples of the codes for verbs). Note that you can use wildcards for the part of speech tag. For example, c* = all conjunctions, vi* = vip-1s, vif-3p, etc.; v*3p* = vip-3p,

The tag is composed of up to four elements (#1-4 above):

1. The major part of speech (e.g. v = verb, p = pronoun)
2. The minor part of speech (e.g. vip = indicative / present tense verb, pp = pronoun / personal)
3. Morphological information (person, number, gender) (e.g. vip-1s = first person singular present tense verb digo, ppo-mp = masculine plural object pronoun)
4. The + indicates that there is a pre-posed or post-posed element (e.g. vr+ : hacerlo, del)
