egw@ [PRONOUN personal first singular nominative]
using the ENTER TAG > PRONOUN option
I get 423 hits which include kagw
To get rid of kagw I have entered
egw@ [PRONOUN personal first singular nominative] <NOT> kai
but now I have only 140 hits and many verses containing egw such as Matt 3:11 and Matt 3:14 do not appear.
I am obviously doing something wrong, I have just started to learn NT Greek. How do I find all the instances of egw without kagw?

egw@ [PRONOUN personal first singular nom] <NOT> <PRECEDED BY> <WITHIN 1 Words> kai
Of course, the problem with this is that it also excludes 3 instances where the phrase "kai egw" occurs without crasis (i.e.: without being contracted into "kagw").
Fortunately, there is a special "crasis" tag that you can use to find (or exclude) instances of crasis. The following search will do exactly what you want:
egw@ [PRONOUN personal first singular nom] @-"crasis"
Hope this helps.

I managed to work out, eventually, that <NOT><WITHIN 1 WORDS> "kai" would work, but I hadn't figured out "crasis"!
That's one for future reference!
