Word Classes and Parts of Speech

Part of speech or other word class information can be stored with equivalence entries. Use the following abbreviations:

     P: Pronoun           n: noun
     c: conjunction       p: preposition
     i: interjection      u: unclassed
     m: modifier          v: verb

A part of speech abbreviation follows a semicolon (;), where the part of speech designation applies to that word and to all equivalences which follow it up to the next part of speech abbreviation on the line. For example:

     wish;n,pie in the sky,dream;v,yearn,long,pine

The above is an entry for the root word "wish". The equivalences "pie in the sky", and "dream" are classed as nouns. The equivalences "yearn", "long", and "pine" are classed as verbs.
