How can I extract specific vowels in a phoneme tier within a word in the word tier? I'm not sure how to limit my search to just the words I found previously in the word tier. Is it possible? Thank you!

welcome to the Linguistics StackExchange

You (or someone you work with that is familiar with praat scripting) should be able to accomplish this with a praat script.

The following script should be easily adapted to fit your needs. In fact, on line 60 you can see that it asks the user for a targets file which would be the words that you have already identified. Assuming you have a p2fa-like aligned text grid.
