I would like Regex to show me error every time the source contains word „ ce “ except when it contains words „que ce soit“ and „en ce qui concerne“.

I would appreciate your help,

thank you!

One possible regex ... Oct 7, 2017

Maybe this regex helps. It uses negative lookbehind and negative lookahead to exclude certain words words before and after "ce".

It's not perfect though -- it won't match "ce" in "que ce qui concerne" and "en ce soit", but my limited French language skills tell me these phrases aren't likely to occur.

(?<!(en))(?<!(que)) ce (?!(qui concerne))(?!(soit))
