A complete entry contains the following information Pin-Yin romanization, tone marker, radical index, grammar code, field of use, origin and date of publication, English glosses, romanized quotations with English translations comments Yen-Ren-Chao romanization, and telecodechicode equivalents. Simplified formats are available. Subsets of lexical data are selectively retrievable from the master store according to pre-specified descriptors e.g., field of use. The end product will be applicable to both automated and conventional modes of translation. It will also provide a lexical data base for linguistic studies in the context of machine translation R and D. Author
