It does not use the same format as the 1.5 to 1.6 sense maps. Each line contains 3 fields separated by semicolons:

Most synsets have been matched and the matching is usually 1 to 1, but there are several instances of many 1.6 to one 1.7 mappings. The methodology used to match the synsets was not strictly applied. Matched synsets had at least one lemma in common, matching part of speech, and the definitions were judged to be sufficiently similar. The matching of other lemmas in the synset, of lexicographer files, of hypernyms and hyponyms were also factors in the decision. In the end the decision to match is a subjective one.
