Moby (tm) Thesaurus II Documentation Notes

This documentation, the software and/or database are:

Public Domain material by grant from the author, January, 2001.

Moby (tm) Thesaurus for the MSDOS operating system is compressed and
distributed as a single zip file.  After extraction, the vocabulary
files included with this product are in ordinary ASCII format with
CRLF (ASCII 13/10) delimiters.

Roget 1911 (roget13a.txt)

NOTE: Accents have been stripped from words, e.g., 'etude' does not
mark the accent on the initial 'e'.

Moby Thesaurus is the largest and most comprehensive thesaurus data
source in English available for commercial use.  This second edition
has been thoroughly revised adding more than 5,000 root words (to
total more than 30,000) with an additional _million_ synonyms and
related terms (to total more than 2.5 _million_ synonyms and related
terms).  Although this thesaurus is provided in a very simple ASCII
format suitable to viewing, editing, and automatic parsing, most
users will consider reformatting schemes to represent the data in a
more economical form, such as table of related terms whose index can
be shared by many roots.  This is roughly the technique used by the
thesaurus in print form that has the large index coupled with the
synonyms under abstract (and arbitrary) headings in the front matter.
Tables of related terms can be stored in, for example, LZ compressed
form until actually required by the application.  Combining such
schemes could easily reduce the storage requirement of this data by
an order of magnitude or more.  The supplementary file, roget13a.txt,
provides a small thesaurus already organized in this form that you
may wish to use as a guide when developing your own categories of
synonyms.  Also, of course, uncommon words can be stripped out
according to the developer's criterion, keeping only the core and
most oftenly used information.  Once unarchived, the database format
is flat-file ASCII: each record (delimited from other records with a
terminal carriage return/linefeed [ASCII 13/10] character) is of the

(In this example, the root word is 'frill', which is always the first
word of the list.  The synonyms and related words are listed in ASCII
alphabetical order after the root.  Each entry, including the root,
is followed by a comma.  The last entry in a record is followed by a
carriage return/linefeed [ASCII 13/10].)

Part-of-Speech information is not stored with this thesaurus.  A
same author supplies a separate lexical database providing the
part(s)-of-speech for a large collection (>200,000) of English words
and phrases that can be used in conjunction with this list to supply
POS information if needed by the particular application.

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
