The following page has been changed by GoutamSaha:

  Again, In Bangla and Hindi etc, languages, there is usage of '''Compounding (or Samas) ''' two or more words into a single short unified word where the suffix (Vibhakti) of the first word is removed while compounding. Meaning of the compounded word may not keep intact the meanings of all the constituent words.  In Bahubrihi Samas, the compounded word may mean even a different third word only. '''COMPOUNDING Markups''' are shown as below.   
+ '''Both the Euphonic and Compounding Markups are very useful for understanding semantic meaning of various much used unified words in Bangla and Hindi languages etc.'''

  We can also provide metadata on a '''class''' of an object (e.g. for nounian words), which helps in meaningful translation and in preparing synset etc. This is to provide semantic (or some preliminary '''ontology''') metadata. For an example, autorickshaw is one kind of vehicle only.
