1. The form "bird+house-s" is incorrect. If the manual says otherwise, then it needs to be changed. The correct form is "bird+houses".
2. We don't support this feature at this time. We are in a process of implementing a generic "@x:" tag which will allow users to specify anything they want to. Your example below, then will look like "Toronto at x:geo". This should be implemented in a day or so.
3. We discourage people from editing the "depfile.cut". Adding anything to that file without additional changes to other supporting files and/or programs will cause problems with other programs like mor and post. We also no longer support the "depadd.cut" file. Check just simply ignores it.
We no longer distribute the "depadd.cut" file. You must have a very old installation of CLAN and new updates do not delete any old files present there.
