Extracted Concepts - Use the Similar Terms List

This section contains a short guide on how to use the Similar Terms list for extracted concepts.

After you have executed a corpus analysis, and opened the Extracted Concepts list in its tab, you can access the Similar Terms list.

The terms in this list are the results of the corpus analysis and can help you to further refine your thesaurus with terms as synonyms or concepts you can select and add to it from here. The analysis will calculate the terms based on PoolParty's similarity algorithms and display them here, including their similarity scores. A higher score means the similarity is higher compared to your thesaurus' concepts.
