Pattern suffixes

Any word, set of words, or regular expression may take a suffix as described below. The word and the suffix should not have any spaces between or in them.

Not: !

A word followed by ! will match anything other than that word. It will also match the beginning or end of the transcribed text.

Zero or one: ?

A word followed by ? makes the word optional. That is, it will match zero or one occurrence of the word in the transcribed text.

Zero or more: *

A word followed * will match zero or more occurrences of the word in the transcribed text.

One or more: +

A word followed by + will match one or more occurrences of the word in the transcribed text.

Specified number of occurrences: {number}

If you want to match a specific number of occurrences of a word, place the number in { } after the word.

Range of occurrences: {min,max}

If you want to limit the number of repetitions of a word to a specific range, place the range in { } after the word. The range is inclusive, so X{2,3} would match either X X or X X X.
