You early-Chomsky guys always want to build trees. You can seach for NP's
and VP's in Accordance if you are smart enought to define your own NP/VP
rules using the construct window. If you have been doing early-Chomsky for a
few decades this should not be too difficult. Your rules will not cover
everything possible NP/VP but with a little care they can do what you want
them to do.
