The categories listed below with the relevant attributes and values are based on the Multext and Eagles documents. The specifications constitute a ``harmonized'' set of features which properly describe lexical items of the different languages.
In keeping with the general aim of the project, these harmonized specifications -- and the related resources -- will contribute to the standardization of the corpus annotation work. This common set of features, besides the advantages described in the Introduction, will also be a common ground to perform comparisons of different annotation tool results, because the existence of many lexical description systems is causing nowadays a problem for comparing results.
Therefore the categories and features listed below are the common reference for the work done by the different groups.
