In searches the "*" character is used as a wildcard to specify that you want to match zero or more characters. Because error codes have "*" character in them you want to tell CLAN that in this case you are looking for the actual "*" character and not wildcard. The "\" character means that the following character is literal character and not a wildcard, so "\**" means that you want for find a "*" character followed by any zero or more characters. This will let you match [*] and [* aux]. CLAN searches have three wildcard character: *, % and _ .

Now I wanna calculate the number of utterances without those tags([*], [* aux], [* wh] as well as those containing www, yyy.  I tried using the following command:  trim -s"[*_ ]" +1 , only to find it turns out to be unsuccessful.

I find out that at%mor, "walking" is coded not as a verb but as "PART |" . In that case, I guess I need to  also include "PART|"  , right?  I was wondering what might be the comprehensive command to be used to extract all the verbs mentioned above?
