Aufstellungssystematik Lusitanistik

"Die Fachsystematik der lusitanischen Buchbestände wird mit Ausnahme der Gruppen B, H, L, R und S um ein Geozeichen ergänzt, das erkennen läßt, ob es sich um ein Werk über Portugal, das portugiesischsprachige Afrika, Asien oder Amerika handelt. Länderübergreifende Darstellungen haben kein Geo-Zeichen und stehen jeweils am Anfang einer Systemgruppe."

WordNet

"WordNet® is a large lexical database of English. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser. WordNet is also freely and publicly available for download. WordNet's structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.

Glottolog Classification

"Languages are classified (...) into 243 families and 189 isolates, i.e., one-member families. This classification is the best guess by the Glottolog editors and the classification principles are described (...). Users should be aware that for many groups of languages, there is little available historical-comparative research, so the classifications are subject to change as scholarship and interest in those languages increase."

Thesaurus of Old English

"This presentation of Old English vocabulary is conceptually arranged, and is therefore entitled A Thesaurus of Old English (TOE). The vocabulary of Anglo-Saxon England is presented within ordered categories. Ideally, the reader should approach the materials of the TOE by subject rather than through the alphabetic index of the printed edition. Roget-owners have long been accustomed to begin with a word and, by trying a few locations listed in the index, find the vocabulary group wanted. Moreover, for inclusiveness they trade detailed information.
