DESCRIPTION

       This section of the WordNet Reference Manual contains manual pages that
       describe the formats of the various files included in different WordNet
       3.0 packages.

NOMENCLATURE

       All files are in ASCII.  Fields are generally separated by  one  space,
       unless  otherwise  noted,  and  each  line is terminated with a newline
       character.  In the file format descriptions, terms in italics refer  to
       field  names.   Characters  or  strings in boldface represent an actual
       character or string as it appears  in  the  file.   Items  enclosed  in
       italicized  square  brackets  ([  ]) may not be present.  Since several
       files contain fields that have the identical meaning, field  names  are
       consistently  defined.   For example, several WordNet files contain one
       or  more  synset_offset  fields.   In  each  case,  the  definition  of
       synset_offset is identical.
