  • identifying, among entries of a first table each representing a natural language term, an entry representing the distinguished natural language term;

    accessing, in the identified entry of the first table, a term ID uniquely identifying the term to which the identified entry of the first table corresponds;

    identifying, among entries of a second table each representing correspondence between a term and a definition defining the term, a plurality of entries each containing the accessed term ID;

    accessing, in each of the identified entries of the second table, a definition ID uniquely identifying a definition;

    for each of the accessed definition IDs, identifying, among entries of a third table each representing a definition, an entry containing the accessed definition ID, the third table being distinct from the second table;

    for each of the identified entries of the third table, accessing in the identified entry of the third table a natural language representation of the definition represented by the entry of the third table; and

    attributing the accessed definition natural language representations to the distinguished natural language term.
