Users of computerized dictionaries require powerful and flexible tools for analyzing and manipulating the informa- tion in them. This paper discusses a system for grammat- ically describing and parsing entries from machine-readable dictionary tapes and a lexicai data base representation for storing the dictionary information. It also describes a lan- guage for querying, formatting, and maintaining diction- aries and other lexical data stored with that representation.
