The query language in TIGERSearch is limited due to its lack of universal quantification. This restriction makes it impossible to make simple queries like "Find sentences that do not include a certain word". We propose an easy way to formulate such queries. We have implemented this extension to the query language in a tool that allows querying parallel treebanks, while including their alignment constraints. Our implementation of universal quantification relies on the view of node sets rather
