A column called Specific Terms redirects you towards the specific terms you have defined.

A term can be classified as a:

  • Generic term: when it includes one or more terms.

    Example: The word "car" is a generic term because it includes in its category the word "sedan".

  • Specific term: when it is included in a upper category in the hierarchy.

    Example: The word "sedan" is a specific term because it is included in the category of the word "car".
