Here is what I did. I first made a search of יהוה with WTM as the search version. Then I opened WLM and created a list with “Load highlighted words from last query” checked, and I got the following interesting list (where #’s in parens are added for convenience):

(1)יהוה @np--n+SxxxExHxNxxRx 6817
(2)יהוה @np--n+SxxxExHxN3xRx 8
(3) יהוה @np--n+SxxxExHxN1xRx 1
(4) יהוה @np--n+SxxxExHxNCxRx 1
(5) יהוה @np--n+SxxxExHxNcxRx 1

After consulting “Editorial note” of Secondary Codes of “The WTM Hebrew Morphological Coding Scheme,” I still cannot figure out the following:

For (2) above, N3: “WTS reads L differently.” Now, what do WTS and L stand for?
It would have been very nice if a “note” explained them.

For (4) and (5) above, what do the underlined “C” and “c” stand for?
The “Editorial note” table does not have them explained.

I would appreciate your explanations.
