       lexnames - List of WordNet lexicographer file names and numbers


       During WordNet development synsets are organized into forty-five lexicographer files based
       on syntactic category  and  logical  groupings.   grind(1WN)  processes  these  files  and
       produces  a  database suitable for use with the WordNet library, interface code, and other
       applications.  The format of the lexicographer files is described in wninput(5WN).

       A file number corresponds to each lexicographer file.  File numbers are encoded in several
       parts  of  the  WordNet  system as an efficient way to indicate a lexicographer file name.
       The file lexnames lists the mapping between file names and numbers, and  can  be  used  by
       programs or end users to correlate the two.

   File Format
       Each  line  in  lexnames contains 3 tab separated fields, and is terminated with a newline
       character.  The first field is the two digit decimal integer file number.  (The first file
       in  the list is numbered 00.)  The second field is the name of the lexicographer file that
       is represented by that number, and the third  field  is  an  integer  that  indicates  the
       syntactic  category  of  the synsets contained in the file.  This is simply a shortcut for
       programs and scripts, since the syntactic category  is  also  part  of  the  lexicographer
       file's name.

   Syntactic Category
       The syntactic category field is encoded as follows:

              1    NOUN
              2    VERB
              3    ADJECTIVE
              4    ADVERB
