Using GRAMCORD for Windows there were only three options listed for META in
the context of 1 Tim 4:14, listed below:

89.108: META {a} : a marker of an associative relation, usually with the
implication of being in the company of - `with, in the company of, together
with.' {Footnote 8859}
89.109: META {b} : a marker of association, involving instruments relevant
to an event - `with, having.'
89.123: META {c} : a marker of a relation in which one thing is combined
with another - `with, combined with.'

Which left out (and maybe more);

89.78: META {k} : a marker of means, with the probable additional
implication of attendant circumstance (see META {d} `with,' 89.79)
89.79: META {d} : a marker of circumstances which contribute significantly
to the context of the principal event - `with, in.' {Footnote 8852}

Does anybody know why other Louw & Nida articles on META did not show up in
the context of 1 Tim 4:14? Or how I can find all occurrences of any given
term using GRAMCORD for Windows? Using Greek Word Main Index 19000/Greek
Word Index - M 14099 there were again only the following listings:
META a with (association) 89.108 6260
     b with (accompanying object) 89.109 6261
     c with (combinative) 89.123 6275

Thank you for any assistance.
