Title T-M Transportation-Markings Database: Composite Categories Classification and Index.
Publication Date 2012
Media Count 418p
Personal Author B. Clearman
Abstract The several category indexes did not ignore the classifications from the earlier modal studies (Parts C/D, E, F, G; and the intermodal study, Part B). But neither did they fully incorporate those classifications. In some instances database category indexes and modal classifications were marked by a substantial correlation, but there are other case in which indexes and classifications displayed only limited correlation. This study, Part Iv (2nd ed.) is a review and revision of the category indexes that are also a form of classification. It examines incorporates modal classifications of the Database indexes. The study thereby creates an integrated core for the entire T-M project -- and not only the Database -- by listing all T-M forms. The end result is a consolidated categories classification. All T-M forms for each mode are grouped together in a single chapter. This contrasts with the modal titles format. Each chapter is divided into primary forms. In the 1st edition the index/classificatons were joined by notes that listed differences between the index and text of the Database. In this edition notes refer to differences between the second editions of modal studies and the CCCI first edition. Other notes refer to new sources and terms. The first edition included a bibliography of new sources. The 2nd bibliography includes sources new to 2nd editions of modal database studies and the 2nd edition of CCCI. A traditional back-of the-book index is also included.
