For those of you working with +/- \'official\' Spanish, French and/or English texts, this thesaurus may prove very useful indeed. Quote:

Hierarchical relationships, which link terms to other terms expressing more general and more specific concepts - i.e. broader terms and narrower terms. Hierarchically related terms are grouped under general subdivisions (known as \"microthesauri\"), which in turn are grouped into the areas of knowledge covered by the Thesaurus. In the UNESCO Thesaurus, broader terms are indicated by the prefix BT, narrower terms by the prefix NT and microthesauri by the prefix MT.

Associative relationships, which link terms to similar terms (related terms) where the relationship between the terms is non-hierarchical. Related terms are indicated by the prefix RT.

Equivalence relationships, which link \"non-preferred\" terms to synonyms or quasi-synonyms which act as \"preferred\" terms. Non-preferred terms are indicated by the prefix UF.

The UNESCO Thesaurus also includes scope notes (SN) which explain the meaning and application of terms, and French (FR) and Spanish (SP) equivalents of English preferred terms.
