       2 fries shy of a happy meal, - I'd say this is 100% baked in that abstract, then. Oh well. That's very interesting reading - seems like a project I should follow.

       Ah - but the linked journal paper is an automatically generated dictionary based on a trawl of the Internet. {Guess who has access to the full paper.}
Mr. [Tindale] is proposing a user generated database. (Ok, I'm clutching some straws on [T]'s behalf)

       I agree with [jinbish], user generated is different, and probably better.
