Download – Permuted alphabetical

The permuted alphabetical version appears in two parts:

 — Part A, which contains the terms beginning with the letters A to I;

— Part B, which contains the terms beginning with the letters J to Z.

 

In the permuted alphabetical version, there are five types of entry, set out in three columns per page in alphabetical order according to the first word or each of the other significant words.

 

Alphabetical entry based on the first significant word of a descriptor

 

— the descriptor, in bold type;

 

— explanatory note, preceded by the abbreviation ‘SN’ (scope note), which clarifies the meaning or use of the descriptor;

 

— the number(s) and name(s) of the microthesaurus or microthesauri to which the descriptor belongs, preceded by the abbreviation ‘MT’ (microthesaurus), in italics;

 

— non-descriptor(s) associated with the headword descriptor, preceded by the abbreviation ‘UF’ (used for) and listed in alphabetical order;

 

— broader descriptor(s) with which the headword descriptor is associated, preceded by the abbreviation ‘BT’ (broader term) and a figure showing the number of hierarchical steps between the hierarchically superior descriptor and the headword descriptor;

 

broader terms are listed:

 

• firstly, in ascending hierarchical order, indented further to the right for each successive step,

 

• secondly, within each hierarchical level, in alphabetical order.

 

— specific descriptor(s) associated with the headword descriptor, preceded by the abbreviation ‘NT’ (narrower term) and a figure showing the number of hierarchical steps between the subordinate descriptor and the headword descriptor;

 

narrower terms are listed:

• secondly, within each hierarchical level, in alphabetical order;

 

— descriptor(s) related to the headword descriptor, preceded by the abbreviation ‘RT’ (related term) and listed in alphabetical order.

Alphabetical entry based on another significant word of a descriptor

 

If a descriptor is listed in the form of a compound term, a permuted or inverted entry is created, based on each of the significant words in the descriptor, other than the first significant word.

 

The permuted entry of a descriptor comprises:

 

— a significant term of the descriptor other than its first significant word, followed by the rest of the wording if the term in question is not the last word in the descriptor, followed by a comma and the first significant term, followed by a dash and the number of the field to which the descriptor belongs, in brackets, all in bold type.

 

Examples:

§ Two significant terms:

Product, originating (2021)

 

§ More than two significant terms:

product nomenclature, agricultural (5611)

nomenclature, agricultural product (5611)

 

Alphabetical entry based on the first significant word of a non-descriptor

 

— the non-descriptor, in ordinary type;

 

— on the following line, the descriptor or indexing term in bold type, preceded by the word ‘USE’ and followed in brackets by the number of the microthesaurus to which it belongs.

 

Examples:

domestic accident

USE accident in the home (2826)

rule of origin

USE originating product (2021)

 

Alphabetical entry based on another significant word of a non-descriptor

 

If a non-descriptor is listed in the form of a compound term, a permuted or inverted entry is created based on each of the significant words in the non-descriptor, other than the first significant word.

 

The permuted entry of a non-descriptor comprises:

 

— a significant term of the non-descriptor, other than its first significant word, followed by the rest of the wording if the headword term is not the last word of the descriptor, followed by a comma and the first significant term, followed by a dash, all in ordinary type;

 

— on the following line, the descriptor or indexing term in bold type, preceded by the word ‘USE’ and followed in brackets by the number of the microthesaurus to which it belongs.

 

Examples:

 

§ Non-descriptors with two significant terms

 origin, rule of —

USE originating product (2021)

 

§ Non-descriptors with four significant terms

agreement, European road transport —

USE AETR agreement (4816)

road transport agreement, European —

USE AETR agreement (4816)

transport agreement, European road —

USE AETR agreement (4816)

 

Alphabetical entry based on another significant word of a unified compound word (descriptors or nondescriptors)

 

Some unified compound words (descriptors or nondescriptors) can be broken down into separate significant parts. In this case, an entry is created using each significant lexical unit composing the descriptor or nondescriptor:

 

— entry based on one of the significant terms composing the descriptor or non-descriptor, followed by the rest of the wording if the headword term is not the last word, followed by a comma and the start of the wording or root, followed by a tilde and a dash, in ordinary type;

 

— on the following line, the descriptor in bold type, preceded by the word ‘USE’ and followed in brackets by the number of the microthesaurus to which it belongs.

 

Example:

forestry, agro~ —

USE agroforestry (5616)
