Why should there be a "See also" tag which points to the same term in German language? I wish I know that. Is there a guideline or policy on this? --Biblbroks 23:57, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
- This is called a "disambiguation see also link". We use it whenever different capitalizations of the same word exist - normally with different meanings. See, as an example, nato and NATO. SemperBlotto 07:36, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
Could someone please provide the complete pronounciation or even better a sound-file of this word? I am no native english speaker and neither know how to pronounce the original Greek word, nor how to say it in english. Wictionary has always been a great help with pronounciation for me. Thanks and keep it up :) 126.96.36.199 01:28, 16 December 2007 (UTC)
Currently, a thesaurus is defined as a dictionary of synonyms. But it seems to me that this is not what many thesauri are. What the thesauri that I have seen do is that, with some or all terms, they associate lists of terms. But the items in the lists are not only synonyms of the term in question, and not only even imperfect synonyms; they include hyponyms and other semantically related terms.
Thus, "dictionary of synonyms" seems to me to be a very rough approximation to the meaning of the word "thesaurus".
The thesauri that I have seen are Roget's 1911, Moby Thesaurus II, and The Penguin Thesaurus. --Dan Polansky 19:22, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
The example "Wiktionary is a thesaurus and dictionary." is not only confusing but self-referential. Shouldn't it be changed? —This comment was unsigned.
