What blooper do you mean? "People" is both a noun and a verb, and the screenshot shows the verbal part of the word's meaning.

Just out of curiosity, is the blooper in the second screen shot, re "people" as a verb, Princeton's?

The WordNet content is based on natural English so it also includes taboo words. They are part of the language after all and people frequently use them - it's the society that labels them as "taboo". You can find dirty words even in learners dictionaries like OALD (Oxford) or LDCE (Longman). It's common lexicographer practice nowadays.

Glad you like the program!

Thanks for your positive comments everyone! I'm glad you find the program useful.

I admit the ARexx interface is simplistic - and I only added it as part of my own learning of how arexx.class actually works. I'm currently working on another OS4 project so no extensions to WordNet's ARexx interface are planned at the moment. Still, thanks for the idea, it's an interesting one.

Thank you very much for this excellent work, it's very usefull !

Very nice!
A really welcome addition would be the possibility to search for words and get info back with some ARexx commands. Basically
"SEARCH_SYNONYMS couch potato" and get the string "idler, loafer, do-nothing, layabout, bum" back, without going through the GUI. This could then be used in a texteditor, for instance.

Anyway, keep up the good work!

The browser you made for this works well (easy to use).
