In an era when knowledge, if not king, is certainly an equal partner with the methodologies directed toward such eminently desirable goals as computer-based commonsense reasoning and understandingqn-general, large-scale resources such as Roget's ~ self-evidently am necessary to advanced knowledge-based computational systems. In contrast to such efforts as(More)
