Note for anyone else editing the PKGBUILD: there was a minor change in the directory structure in the 2021 edition, so in addition to changing the version, I had to change line 19 to install files from the dict directory:

  install -m644 "${srcdir}"/dict/* "${pkgdir}/usr/share/wordnet/dict"

I think that having the wordnet documentation would be useful, I know I use the manpages a a fair bit so having those would be nice.

Updated to 2020.

Note that this package currently includes only the WNDB files (the only thing available in the English WordNet WNDB distribution) and does not include WordNet documentation (such as the man pages). This may be a bit confusing since e.g. the WN(1WN) man page refers to those missing pages. On the other hand, using the Princeton WordNet documentation could mean that some of the documentation information is incorrect.

Would users of this package find it more useful if this package had the same content as the wordnet-common package (including the documentation), but with the WNDB files replaced with those from English WordNet?

Updated the hash so it works for the 2019 edition again. I'll try updating to 2020 when I get some time.
