I would like to do a command line search in which I exclude a particular morphological feature. For example, I would like to find any masc., dual, construct nouns that occur without a suffix: .*@ncmdc... how can I specify 'not suffix'?

Thank you.

I don't do this kind of searches often, but I think this is what you want:
.*@ncmdc+Sx*
+S tells BW to search the following suffix, but the x means that there is nothing in the suffix spot of the search.
Try this and see if you get the results you want.
You can play around with this on the command line by starting a search and chosing options from the command line assistant.
God bless!
