While the Wordlist is useful for tracking occurrences of individual words, the Search offers natural language searching through the manuscripts.
All searches are performed page-by-page, and results are returned as page links.
Note that as searching is done page-by-page, phrases which span pages will not be found; similarly for proximity searches.
- C & K are considered equivalent, and are represented as C.
- the digraphs Ch, Dd, Ff, Ng, Ll, Ph, Rh, and Th are treated as character pairs (unlike the Wordlist).
- the ‘middle welsh v’ character ỽ and ‘middle welsh ll’ character ỻ appear as w and ll respectively;
- the character represented by ð in Peniarth 20 appears as dd.
