Machine tractable dictionaries as tools and resources for NL prosessing

  title={Machine tractable dictionaries as tools and resources for NL prosessing},
  author={Yorick Wilks and Dan Fass and Cheng-ming Guo and James E. McDonald and Tony Plate and Brian M. Slator},
This paper discusses three different but related large-scale computational methods for the transformation of machine readable dictionaries (MRDs) into machine tractable dictionaries, i.e., MRDs converted into a format usable for natural language processing tasks. The MRD used is The Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English.
