Abstract:
Outlines some important principles in the design of documents done in the field of composition studies. Maps the possible subject access points and presents research done on each kind of these. Shows how theories of information retrieval must build on or relate to different theories of concepts and meaning. Discusses two contrasting theories of semantics worked out by Ludwig Wittgenstein: the picture theory and the theory of language games, and demonstrates the different consequences of such theories for information retrieval. Finally, discusses the implications for information professionals.
