Kielitieteen asiasanasto

"Asiasanat ovat aina substantiiveja: joko yksittäistermejä, sanaliittoja tai yhdyssanoja. Asiasanat ovat joko yksikkö- tai monikkomuodossa. Yksikössä ovat abstrakteja käsitteitä ja toimintaa kuvaavat sanat. Monikossa ovat yleensä konkreettisia, laskettavissa olevia käsitteitä merkitsevät sanat. Termeillä voi olla yksikössä ja monikossa eri merkitys, jolloin molemmat muodot esiintyvät sanastossa (kielioppi - kieliopit). Asiasanaston laatimisessa on noudatettu suomenkielisen tesauruksen laatimis- ja ylläpito-ohjeita (SFS 5471).

Either yksittäistermejä, word associations, or compound words Key words are either singular or plural unit are abstract concepts and activities described by the words plural are usually tangible, quantifiable concepts of the words for terms can be singular and the plural different meaning.. whereby the two forms appear in the dictionary (grammar - grammars).

General Multilingual Environmental Thesaurus

"The basic idea for the development of GEMET was to use the best of the presently available excellent multilingual thesauri, in order to save time, energy and funds. GEMET was conceived as a 'general' thesaurus, aimed to define a common general language, a core of general terminology for the environment. Specific thesauri and descriptor systems (e.g. on Nature Conservation, on Wastes, on Energy, etc.) have been excluded from the first step of development of the thesaurus and have been taken into account only for their structure and upper level terminology.


"EuroVoc is a multilingual, multidisciplinary thesaurus covering the activities of the EU, the European Parliament in particular. It contains terms in 23 EU languages (Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish), plus in three languages of countries which are candidates for EU accession: македонски (mk), shqip (sq) and cрпски (sr).

European Language Social Science Thesaurus

"ELSST employs the usual range of terms and thesaural relationships: preferred terms and non-preferred terms (UFs); the hierarchical relationships (broader terms (BTs) and narrower terms (NTs)); and the associative relationship/related terms (RTs). Scope Notes (SNs) are used to define the intended meaning and usage of the preferred term within the domain of the thesaurus. Its main aim is to facilitate access to data resources across Europe, independent of domain, resource, language and vocabulary. ELSST is used to aid retrieval in the multinational CESSDA data portal."
