Not every term needs a scope note, but their presence is of considerable help in using a thesaurus correctly and reaching a correct understanding of the given field of knowledge. These relationships can be divided into three types: hierarchical, equivalency or associative.

A "Broader Term" BT or hyperonym is a more general term, e. Reciprocally, a Narrower Term NT or hyponym is a more specific term, e.

Use USE and Used For UF indicators are used when an authorized term is to be used for another, unauthorized, term; for example, the entry for the authorized term "Frequency" could have the indicator "UF Pitch". Used For UF terms are often called "entry points", "lead-in terms", or "non-preferred terms", pointing to the authorized term also referred to as the Preferred Term or Descriptor that has been chosen to stand for the concept.

As such, their presence in text can be use by automated indexing software to suggest the Preferred Term being used as an Indexing Term. This relationship is described by the indicator "Related Term" RT.

Associative relationships should be applied with caution, since excessive use of RTs will reduce specificity in searches. Consider the following: if the typical user is searching with term "A", would they also want resources tagged with term "B"? If the answer is no, then an associative relationship should not be established.

Thesauri have been widely used in many applications such as information retrieval, natural language processing NLP , and interactive agents. However, several problems, such as morphological analysis, treatment of synonymous and multi-sense words, still remain and corrupt accuracy on thesaurus construction methods.
