I'm looking to write a simple program to extract stuff from Project
        Gutenberg's books (--of whivh there are tens ofthousands thanks to 
        Michael HArt and his volunteers).  There is no collection of metaphors 
        the public domain, and it wouldn't take that much coding if there were a
        database with

        word, (grammatical type), e.g.

        foot, n

        love, n

        run, v

        ugly, adj


        It occured to me that I might take the CIDE/GCIDE database and somehow 
        scrounge the world-list above from that.  I don't think it is available
        on Linux.  Dunno.  Nutshell, it would be a major help to writers to have
        this kind of stuff online instead of a 17-pound book... .

        Thanks for ideas, as well as code snippets!
