   Database Package
       The  database package is a complete installation for WordNet 3.0 users.
       It includes the  3.0  database  files,  source  code  for  the  WordNet
       browsers  and  library,  and documentation.  The other packages are not
       included - they must be downloaded and installed separately.

       Note that with this version of WordNet for Unix platforms, only  source
       code  is  provided.  Users should carefully read the README and INSTALL
       files for detailed information on compiling WordNet and dependencies.

   Prolog Database Package
       The WordNet 3.0 database files are  available  in  this  package  in  a
       Prolog-readable  format.   Documentation  describing the file format is
       included.  This package is only downloadable  in  compressed  tar  file
       format,  although  once  unpackaged it can be used from Windows systems
       since the files are in ASCII.  Many Windows utilities, such as  WinZip,
       can deal with a compressed tar file.

   Sense Map Package
       To  help  users automatically convert 2.1 noun and verb senses to their
       corresponding 3.0 senses, we provide sense mapping information in  this
       package.   This package contains files to map polysemous and monosemous
       words, and documentation that describes the format of these files.   As
       with  the  Prolog  database,  this  package  is  only  downloadable  in
       compressed tar format, but the files are also in ASCII.

NOTES

       The lexicographer  files  and  grind(1WN)  program  are  not  generally
       distributed.

       All of the packages described above may not be available at the time of
       release of the 3.0 database package.
