For each category in the thesaurus, there are selections of synonyms for each appropriate part of speech. The general arrangement of the thesaurus can be visualized from the following example. The concept of Spatial Relations has 61 categories including space, location, cities, rivers, absence, expansion, etc. Category 569 Mountains and Hills starts with a quote by John Ruskin. It has nouns, adjectives, and verbs that describe things hilly or mountainous. There are cross-references to such related categories as Geology and Height. There is also a list of Notable Mountains, Mountain Ranges and Hills. The lists are a form of ready reference. The one associated with category 299 Love is of Famous Lovers of Fact and Fiction. In the lengthy and very detailed index, each word, phrase, foreign expression, and idiom in the thesaurus is found with an associated number for category and/or keyword and paragraph.
