I'm not sure, honestly. I think it might depend on how the source was found. For instance, Googling a sample is not allowed, but if someone's seen a similar text in a source they've personally used before, they're allowed to go back to that source to double-check. Hopefully that makes sense.
I think it's also allowed to search for material on a certain language family and check which descriptions fit, which may lead you to the source/text.

Yeah, I'd think that would be allowed, too.
