Global Industry Classification Standard

"In 1999, MSCI and S&P Global developed the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS), seeking to offer an efficient investment tool to capture the breadth, depth and evolution of industry sectors. GICS is a four-tiered, hierarchical industry classification system. It consists of 11 sectors, 24 industry groups, 68 industries and 157 sub-industries. Companies are classified quantitatively and qualitatively. Each company is assigned a single GICS classification at the sub-industry level according to its principal business activity.

DoGi Classificazione delle materie giuridiche

[utilizzata a partire dal pubblicato 2000]

"This is the translated text of a number of notations of the DoGi classification system. It reflects the structure of the Italian law and by no means is a comparison between civil and common law families' concepts. Only main entries have been translated into English as a vehicular language, to allow foreign users to identify the broad categories of the Italian law. Where no functional equivalents have been found, entries have not been translated. This is a work in progress and it will be updated on a continuing basis."

Literary Terms & Devices in English for Language Arts

"Literary terms and devices are a collection of universal artistic structures that are typical of all works of literature frequently employed by the writers to give meanings and a logical framework to their works through language. When such works are read by readers, they ultimately recognize and appreciate these literary structures. Due to their universality, they also allow the readers to compare a work of one writer to that of another and often across languages.

EAGLE Vocabulary - Execution Technique

"This vocabulary collects all writing techniques and types as attested in the EAGLE BPN. A major classification problem is faced on this respect by epigraphists. In same cases the distinction between the method used to produced a text is used as a principle for a definition, in some other the name of the writing technique is based on the result obtained, no matter of the method that was used. In particular Punctim, litt. Scariphatis and litt. Eminentibus are defintions of this second type."
