       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.


       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.
