I just tried it, and you're right -- it groups together cases like da_categ1
and da_categ2 (whatever categ1 and categ2 are). I think that it sees the
underscore as being a word separator, and I suspect that whatever character
you're using to separate the lemma and the category is being viewed as a
word separator as well. I tried two or three other characters, and they
were seen as word separators as well.
I then replaced lemma + word separator + category with lemma1, lemma2 (just
a number right after the lemma) and it worked fine. You do need to adjust
the settings for WordSmith to look at numbers in WordList, though.
