   Just wondering:

   Those of you with detailed dictionaries (are there any of you?), how do
you list everything in your notes? Everyone here can't be making one-to-one
wordlists. So how do you make comments indicating various usages,
compounds, and so on?

   For example, looking in my Latin dictionary here,

   bed: lectus, cubile; (in a garden) areola; (of a river) alveus ; to go
to _: cubitum ire; to make the _: lectum sternere

   Do you do anything to make sure that you're not relexifying, e.g. use
WordNet, or another language's dictionary?
