A graphical interface for faceted thesaurus design

Uta Priss, Elin K. Jacob


This paper develops a formalization of faceted thesauri that is based on formal concept analysis. The formalization facilitates graphical displays of thesauri as line diagrams of mathematical lattices. Resulting strategies that can be employed to design a thesaurus in an , alternating top-down and bottom-up approach are described and demonstrated through an example.
