6 thoughts on “Controlled Vocabularies: A Glosso-Thesaurus”

  1. To quote a colleague, this article is “painfully elegant.” I love the idea of the CV glossary being a CV itself.

  2. I like this “Glosso-Thesaurus.” Very clever. Nice addition to your helpful series on controlled vocabularies and faceted classification.

  3. My opinion on facets is different. I think a facet is a way in which a user may look at the object. This means that a facet says as much about the user as it says something about the object. I think a facet is the question a user may ask about the object. I think creating facets requires user analysis. I know my opinion is different from what I hear from others.

    If you mention “aboutness”, I mention “basic-levelness”.
