I'd like to do a search that includes nouns or verbal participles that end in -y where -y is not a construct.

If you use the asterisk wildcard character and put your word in double quotes (since the forum software doesn't handle right-to-left gracefully, I'll use y for yod), you can search for each part of speech separately, as follows:

[noun absolute] @"y*"
and
[verb participle absolute] @"y*"

Or you could put them together with <OR> to get both in one go:

[verb participle absolute] @"y*" <OR> [noun absolute] @"y*"

Then you can click on Details and look at the Analysis or Analysis Graph (sorted by, for example, Part of Speech ["PrtSpeech"], to see the relative distribution of this type of spelling).

Thanks. I had the query items out of order.
