Pronoun r Definite Article D Indefinite Article I Nominative oThis two-part vocabulary record is delimited from others with CRLF (ASCII 13/10). For example, engineer Nt means that the word engineer has two main uses in English; the principal part-of-speech is as a noun "That engineer could write in microcode with one hand and in ADA with the other" and its secondary part-of-speech is as a transitive verb: "We sure engineered that software to death." In many cases, the -ed, -ing, -ly, and -ic forms of words are not explicitly listed; the participle forms of verbs will be usually marked simply with the V sign rather than the more specific t or i symbols. Words such as "be," which often have more than one head entry in a dictionary, have one listing with all the parts-of-speech for all senses concatenated. Foreign words commonly used in English usually include their diacritical marks, for example, the acute accent e is denoted by ASCII 142.
