This paper discusses three different but related large-scale compu- tational methods for the transformation of machine readable dictionaries (MRDs) into machine tractable dictionaries, i.e., MRDs converted into a format usable for natural language processing tasks. The MRD used is The Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English.
