A Survey of Indexing Tools for the Language Sciences. LINCS Project Document Series.
In the preparation of a thesaurus for the Language Information Network and Clearinghouse System (LINCS), a number of already existing indexing tools was consulted. Many of these provide important secondary sources of terminology and of term relations, in addition to the primary sources available in original texts. Others are models of thesaurus construction, and some are indexing tools with which the LINCS thesaurus could interface. The discussion of indexing tools, which follows, first treats briefly two models of thesaurus construction (Project LEX and Roget's) which are relevant to LINCS, then discusses in some detail secondary terminology sources, their nature, and the way in which they can be used. Finally, the report considers the question of interface in view of the nature of several indexing tools in contact with LINCS. An appendix lists core terms in the LINCS collection of language oriented terms, as well as their intersection with another source. (Author/AM)
