Organization of the language-specific sections

Following the procedure of the Multext Deliverable, the language-specific sections consist of two distinct parts:

Two different strategies of displaying combinations have been followed:

all the admitted combinations are provided together with an example. This has the disadvantage of producing big lists, given the high number of features and values to combine together, but the advantage of providing the only legal combinations with the relevant constraints in the application of some features/values in presence of other features or values or combination of them (see e.g Gender in Personal Pronouns).
a mathematical expression (essentially a regular expression) describing the combinations is provided, which can subsequently used to generate all combinations, possibly including some which are not valid.
