wordnet/wn prints the string "noun" out whereas I'd rather it simply
        printed "n."  Is there a way of making this substitution using awk?
        (I've never used awk except as a cmdline filter.)

        The following fails:

wn foot -over |grep Overview |awk
{if(!strcmp($3,"noun"))$3="n."; '{printf("%s %s\n", $4, $3);}}'

        If there are any shortcuts, please clue me in!
