NAME

       cntlist - file listing number of times each tagged sense occurs in a semantic concordance,
       sorted most to least frequently tagged

       cntlist.rev - file listing number  of  times  each  tagged  sense  occurs  in  a  semantic
       concordance, sorted by sense key

DESCRIPTION

       A  cntlist  file  for  a  semantic concordance lists the number of times each semantically
       tagged sense occurs in the concordance and its sense number in the WordNet database.  Each
       line  in  the  file  corresponds  to a sense in the WordNet database to which at least one
       semantic  tag  points.   Only  senses  that  are  tagged  in  a  concordance  are  in  the
       concordance's cntlist file.

   WordNet Database cntlist File
       In  the  WordNet  database,  words are assigned sense numbers based on frequency of use in
       semantically tagged corpora.  The cntlist file used by grind(1WN)  to  build  the  WordNet
       database  and  assign  the  sense numbers is a union of the cntlist files from the various
       semantic concordances that were formerly released by Princeton University.  This  combined
       cntlist  file  is  provided  with  the  WordNet  package  and  is found in the WNSEARCHDIR
       directory.

       The cntlist.rev file is  used  at  run-time  by  the  WordNet  library  code  and  browser
       interfaces to print in the output display the number of times each sense has been tagged.

   File Format
       Each  line in a cntlist file contains information for one sense.  The file is ordered from
       most to least frequently tagged sense.  The fields are separated by one  space,  and  each
       line  is  terminated  with  a newline character.  Senses having the same tag_cnt value are
       listed in reverse alphabetical order of the lemma field of the sense_key.

       Each line in cntlist is of the form:

              tag_cnt  sense_key  sense_number

       where tag_cnt is the decimal number of times the sense  is  tagged  in  the  corresponding
       semantic concordance.  sense_key is a WordNet sense encoding and sense_number is a WordNet
       sense number as described in

       The cntlist.rev file contains the same fields described above, in the following order:

              sense_key  sense_number  tag_cnt

NOTES

       Princeton no longer maintains or releases the Semantic  Concordance  files.   The  cntlist
       file  used  to order the senses in WordNet 3.0 was generated from the Semantic Concordance
       files at the point that they were last updated in 2001.  In general, the order  of  senses
       presented  usually reflects what the user would expect, however sense ordering is now less
       reliable than in prior releases and should not be construed as an  accurate  indicator  of
       frequency of use.
