  • match.<mark>:word —> e.g. match.marks:ἀγάπῃ
    • combine them by separating with a colon e.g. match.vowels:match.accents:hebrew:מֶֽלֶךְ

  • match.nomarks — ignores all non-spacing marks, regardless of language defaults.
  • match.exact — matches your word exactly.
  • match.all — a synonym for “exact”.

Some languages will support:

  • — matches are sensitive to capital/lowercase letters.
  • match.form — ignores stemming but allows capital/lowercase letters.
