   Database Package
       The  database package is a complete installation for WordNet 3.0 users.
       It includes the  3.0  database  files,  source  code  for  the  WordNet
       browsers  and  library,  and documentation.  The other packages are not
       included - they must be downloaded and installed separately.

       Note that with this version of WordNet for Unix platforms, only  source
       code  is  provided.  Users should carefully read the README and INSTALL
       files for detailed information on compiling WordNet and dependencies.

   Prolog Database Package
       The WordNet 3.0 database files are available in this package in a  Pro-
       log-readable  format.   Documentation  describing  the  file  format is
       included.  This package is only downloadable  in  compressed  tar  file
       format,  although  once  unpackaged it can be used from Windows systems
       since the files are in ASCII.  Many Windows utilities, such as  WinZip,
       can deal with a compressed tar file.

   Sense Map Package
       To  help  users automatically convert 2.1 noun and verb senses to their
       corresponding 3.0 senses, we provide sense mapping information in  this
       package.   This package contains files to map polysemous and monosemous
       words, and documentation that describes the format of these files.   As
       with  the  Prolog  database,  this package is only downloadable in com-
       pressed tar format, but the files are also in ASCII.

NOTES
       The lexicographer files and grind(1WN) program are not  generally  dis-
       tributed.

       All of the packages described above may not be available at the time of
       release of the 3.0 database package.
