This index gives the list of morphosyntactic descriptions (MSDs) and their features. In the table below, the first column gives the MSD, the second its expansion into a feature-structure, the third gives the number of entries in the lexicon (64,003 entries), and the fourth gives some examples as word-form/lemma. The list was extracted form the Czech MULTEXT-East lexicon.

Note that for Hungarian, the number of theoretically possible MSDs represented in this index is much greater than those found in the lexicon.
