Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n11 p930-37 Sep 2001
Proposes a structure for natural language descriptions of the semantic content of visual materials that requires descriptions to be (modified) keywords, phrases, or simple sentences, with components that are grammatical relations common to many languages. This structure makes it easy to implement a collection's descriptions as a relational database, enabling efficient search via the application of well-developed database-indexing methods. (Author/AEF)
