Hi Ralph,

Thanks for the detailed reading. I've addressed your comments and 
updated the document [1] accordingly, see below.

Correct on both accounts. Added:
	[[The %lexform% is the lexical form of the first WordSense of
	the Synset (the first
	WordSense in the Princeton source as signified by its 	
	"wordnumber", see <a href="#distribution">Overview of the
	WordNet Prolog distribution</a>). ]]

All the subproperties are present. The hyponymOf property is also 
present. You may be alluding to the fact that the inverse properties are 
not in the list. I leave those out at that point in the document to not 
give the false impression to RDFS-only users that they are indeed in the

Thanks for spotting, fixed.

Some of them did not have an example from the original source, so added 
those. Concerning the direction: the text states quite unambiguously the 
direction by three statements:
- original source format, e.g.: mm(Synset_ID_A, Synset_ID_B).
- example, e.g. mm(100006026,107463651).  [Person,People].
- Maps to: memberMeronymOf(Synset_ID_A, Synset_ID_B)

I don't think adding triples will make things more clear as these
would look very similar to the "Maps to" part, only then in RDF syntax.

Nasty one. Thanks, fixed.

No, there are a few more. The text now reads
Some words contain characters that are not allowed in NCNames. In order 
to generate a correct URI we changed the following characters into 
underscores: '/', '\','(', ')' and ' ' (space).
For example, the URI for the word "read/write_memory" becomes:

Thanks, fixed.

changed to 'an RDF/OWL'

Thanks for the careful reading,
