Overview of Oracle Text Thesaurus Features

Users of your query application looking for information on a given topic might not know which words have been used in documents that refer to that topic.

Oracle Text enables you to create case-sensitive or case-insensitive thesauruses that define synonym and hierarchical relationships between words and phrases. You can then retrieve documents that contain relevant text by expanding queries to include similar or related terms as defined in the thesaurus.

You can create a thesaurus and load it into the system.

This section contains the following topics.


Oracle Text thesaurus formats and functionality are compliant with both the ISO-2788 and ANSI Z39.19 (1993) standards.
