The service maintains a database of multi-language thesauri, i.e. collections of terms with semantic relationships such as equivalent in meaning, broader or narrower in meaning, or associated in some other way. It provides access to each documented thesaurus and to lists of thesauri. Maintaining thesauri across different languages helps to encourage interoperability through connections between terms expressing similar concepts in different languages.
API methods support retrieval of concept lists from one or more thesauri at multiple levels, either top-most concepts, all concepts, or subsets. Methods also support submission of one concept and retrieval of all concepts from the database related to the one in the request, including those in different languages.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
