I'm very impressed by your site ; there is lots and lots of care evident.
Words are defined with other words.
I am playing with the idea of representing or structuring intelligent meaning in machine useable form, probably as a component of a more elaborate system.
Can you please tell me if you know of anyone who might have done work with dictionary source content and neural networks to create machine understandable English context?
Thank you for you consideration of my request.
