Duplication in lemmas results

Hi Admins,

As I see for the following words there is a duplication in lemmas endpoint results.

https://od-api.oxforddictionaries.com/api/v2/lemmas/en/crater

results is :

crater

Crater

and this: https://od-api.oxforddictionaries.com/api/v2/lemmas/en/cafe gives:

cafe

CAFE

For the word "be" it gives three forms: BE, Be, be

This also is seen in V1.

Could you please explain the reason?

Best Regards,

    Hello @laraman

    Please accept my apologies for the slowness of this response

    I've forwarded this case to my colleagues from the technical team, and I was informed it isn't a duplication.

    The results mean that the given word can be an inflection of those Lexical Entries. For example, the word 'crater' can be a verb, a noun or other lexical category.

    I hope it helped!
