+ '''MORPHOLOGICAL Metadata:'''
+ 
+ In many languages (for an example, Hindi) verb form changes according to the gender,
+ person and  number of the subject of a sentence. This aspect is important in the
+ Localization process.
+ 
+ For example:
+ 
+ (a) "Paul goes" takes the form "Paul Jata Hai" (Hindi); here, the subject- Paul is masculine gender, third person and singular number, verb-form is "Jata Hai. " 
+ 
+ (b) "Ami goes" takes the form "Ami Jatee Hai" (Hindi); here, the subject- Ami is feminine gender, third person and singular number, verb-form is "Jatee Hai." 
+ 
+ (c) "They go"  takes the form "O Jate Hain" (Hindi); here, the subject- "They" is 
+ considered to be of masculine gender, third person and plural number.
+    
+ (d) "They go" takes the form "O Jatee Hain" (Hindi); here, the subject- "They" is 
+ considered to be of feminine gender, third person and plural number.
+ 
+ (e) "I go" takes the form "Mai Jata Hoon" (Hindi); here, the subject- "I" is of masculine gender, first person and singular number.
+ 
+ (f) "I go" takes the form "Mai Jatee Hoon" (Hindi); here, the subject- "I" is considered to be of feminine gender (i.e. a girl says "I go"), first person, singular nember.
+ 
+ (g) "You go" will be "Tum Jate Ho" (Hindi); here, "you" is meant to a male (second 
+ person, singular number).
+ 
+ (h) "You go" will be "Tum Jatee Ho" (Hindi); here, "you" is meant to a female (second
+ person, singular number).   
+ 
+ So, we need to add such '''Morphological''' metadata for better internationalization & localization (e.g., localizing English content to Hindi).
+ 
+ {{{
+ 
+ <!-- Morphological Metadata for I18N & L10N -->

+ 
+ <pos_cat name="verb">go</pos_cat>
+ 
+ <!-- Masculine Gender 2nd Person Singular Number -->
+ 
+ 
+ <pos_cat name="pronoun" meaning="female_per2_num1">You</pos_cat>
+ 
+ <pos_cat name="verb">go</pos_cat>
+ 
+ <!-- Feminine Gender Second Person Singular Number -->
