    The ENAMDICT/JMnedict files contain Japanese proper names; place-names, surnames, given names, (some) comapny names and product names. These were originally included in the EDICT file, along with other non-name entries. By late 1995, the number of name entries had exceeded the others, and the file was becoming unmanageably large, so the decision was made to split it. (The split was done automatically, and may have been imperfectly performed. Please notify any errors.) From this split came the ENAMDICT file.
