wngroups — discussion of WordNet search code to group similar verb senses

Description

Some similar senses of verbs have been grouped by the lexicographers. This grouping is done statically in the lexicographer source files using the semantic pointer_symbol $. Transitivity is used to combine groups of overlapping senses into the largest sense groups possible.

Notes

Coverage of verb groups is incomplete.
